Cops studying footage on scuffle at rally

KUALA LUMPUR: Police are scrutinising CCTV and video footage of a scuffle between a group of protesters and media representatives ­during a supposedly peaceful rally to protest against the GST on May 1.

City police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Seri Mohmad Salleh said investigations were continuing.

“We received a police report from a cameraman of an online media portal just after the incident occurred. We have classified the case, under Section 147 of the Penal Code, as rioting,” he said.

He added that once the indivi­duals were identified, their photos would be released to the press.
