PETALING JAYA: Deputy Education Minister P. Kamalanathan (pic) has lodged a police report alleging that he was assaulted by an Umno member during a branch meeting in Hulu Selangor on Sunday.
Hulu Selangor OCPD Supt Shukri Yaacob said Kamalanathan was attending the meeting with a group of Hulu Selangor Umno Youth members when the alleged incident occurred around 2.30pm.
"He got into a conversation with a member, who holds a high post in the Hulu Selangor Umno branch, regarding a request to transfer his son, who is a teacher in Johor, to Hulu Selangor.
"When he refused, the suspect argued with him and then struck him," said Supt Shukri.
Kamalanathan, who is also the Hulu Selangor MP and MIC central working committee member, alleged that he was punched in the throat and forced to cancel the meeting as a result of the commotion.
He later lodged a police report at the Bukit Sentosa station.
Supt Shukri said the case was being investigated under Section 323 of the Penal Code and police were on the lookout for the suspect.
