Six rogue policemen arrested

KAJANG: Six anti-narcotics police personnel who raided a house, claiming that it was used as a drug distribution centre, turned rogue when they found nothing and extorted money from a couple who was there.

The policemen, comprising an Inspector and five lower-ranked personnel from the Kajang police district, first raided the home Monday night.

The suspect and his wife, in their 40s, were then taken to the district police headquarters although no drugs were discovered in their house or on them.

Not satisfied with their failed operation, the policemen allegedly told the couple that their relatives would have to pay about RM12,000 for their release despite their innocence.

One of the relatives agreed to pay the sum. However, he lodged a police report before he agreed to a place where they could meet to hand over the payment.

“The relative went to see the policemen at the police headquarters and handed over the bag of money,” a source said.

“However, immediately after the exchange, a squad of CID police officers arrested the six policemen.”

The couple returned home at about 4.30am the following morning.

It is learnt that the six were released on police bail on Wednesday and have since been suspended from their duties.

Federal Narcotics Crime Investi­gations Department director Comm Datuk Noor Rashid Ibrahim said investigations were ongoing.

“I will not tolerate such wrongdoings by my men,” he said.

“We will uphold the law without fear or favour.”
