KUALA LUMPUR: Two police officers from the narcotics department were arrested yesterday for allegedly accepting bribes in return for the release of several drug pushers. 

It is learnt that officers from the Anti-Corruption Agency arrested one of the officers at his office while another surrendered after learning the ACA was looking for him. 

Sources said that ACA officers recovered a large sum of money after searching the duo who are with the narcotics department of city police headquarters in Jalan Hang Tuah. 

City chief police officer Deputy Comm Datuk Dell Akbar Khan confirmed the arrests but declined to elaborate, saying the matter was being investigated by the ACA. 

It is believed that the arrested officers struck a deal with drug syndicate members arrested during a big heroin seizure in the city last week.
