A SALES manager alleged that he was assaulted and locked up at the Kepong police station for five days after he refused to pay RM300 to a corporal who stopped him on the road and accused him of drink-driving, leading Chinese papers reported. 

According to Nanyang Siang Pau and Sin Chew Daily, Lim Keng Aun, 48, was driving towards Puchong after a dinner at Kepong on Aug 8, when he was ordered to pull over by the corporal and another policeman in a patrol car. 

Speaking at a press conference, organised by the Federal Territory MCA’s public service and complaints bureau, Lim said he told the corporal that he was prepared to go for a test as he had taken two glasses of beer at the dinner. 

“The corporal, however, insisted that I settle the case with him. He told me to pay him RM300 as settlement,” Lim was quoted as saying. 

Lim said he was angry about the corporal’s demand and told him that he would lodge a report against him. 

Lim then drove away and headed for the Kepong police station with the patrol car trailing behind him. 

“On hearing that I wanted to lodge a report against him for extortion, the corporal grabbed an iron chair and hit me on my head, causing me to bleed profusely. The corporal continued to assault me but was restrained by other policemen,” Lim said. 

Despite the injury, he added, he wanted to make the report but was pushed out of the police station, handcuffed and taken to the traffic police headquarters by the corporal in his patrol car. 

According to the report, after Lim’s statement was taken, he was sent to the general hospital for treatment. 

Lim said from the hospital he was taken back to the Kepong police station, where he was detained for the night. 

“The following day, I was taken to the court, which granted the police the permission to detain me for seven days,” he said.
