PETALING JAYA: Deputy Education Minister and Hulu Selangor MP, P. Kamalanathan on Monday confirmed that he has made a police report on Sunday at his service centre in Hulu Selangor, following his assault by a Hulu Selangor Umno member.
"I have given my statement to the police and am fully cooperating with them on their investigation.
" I do not wish to comment further on this matter as it may hinder the ongoing investigation by the police," he said when contacted on Monday.
Kamalanathan on Sunday was assaulted during his conversation with a member, who holds a high post in the Hulu Selangor Umno branch, regarding a transfer request for his son, who is a teacher in Johor, to Hulu Selangor.
According to the investigating officer, upon Kamalanathan's refusal, the suspect argued with him and then struck on his throat which eventually led for the meeting to be cancelled.
The case is currently being investigated under Section 323 of the Penal Code and police were on the lookout for the suspect.
