PETALING JAYA: The investigation papers on the incident where a Hulu Selangor Umno Youth member allegedly punched Deputy Education Minister II P. Kamalanathan have been submitted to the Attorney-General’s Chambers.

Selangor police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Shukri Dahlan said the papers were submitted to the A-G’s Chambers on Wednesday.

"We have recorded the statement of the man who allegedly punched the Deputy Minister.

"The statement, along with our findings, have been submitted to the A-G's Chambers," he said when contacted Thursday.

While talk was rife that the member concerned, teacher Muhammad Ridzuan Suhaimi, would be charged over the assault, SDCP Mohd Shukri said it was up to the A-G's Chambers.

"We have done our part... we must wait for their decision," he said.

On Sunday, Kamalanathan lodged a police report over the alleged assault by the teacher, who was apparently unhappy that his wife, also a teacher, was denied a transfer to Hulu Selangor.

Umno has issued a show-cause letter over the incident and party secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said it would take action against Muhammad Ridzuan, who is the Hulu Selangor Umno Youth assistant secretary.
