KUALA LUMPUR: Police have hauled up three officers of the Federal Territory Islamic Religious Department (Jawi) and five Rela members to help in investigations into allegations by a guest relations officer (GRO) that a policeman photographed her while she was urinating on a truck after she was arrested in an anti-vice raid. 

City police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Dell Akbar Khan said police have also asked three reporters, who followed the enforcement officers during the raid, to give their statements on the incident. 

He said the 26-year-old complainant and the policeman suspected to have taken the photographs have been summoned to give statements. 

Denying that police were involved in the incident, he said: “No policeman was involved and no police vehicle was used in the operation. 

“We were only involved after the complainant lodged a police report at the Cheras police station on March 27,” DCP Dell told reporters. 

In the March 22 raid mounted by Jawi and Rela members, 14 GROs were detained, including the complainant in an entertainment spot at Jalan Imbi. – Bernama
