KUALA LUMPUR: The police are investigating an allegation that two policemen in a patrol car did not stop to help a hit-and-run victim at Jalan Sungai Besi flyover here.  

Police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Dell Akbar Khan said he had instructed the disciplinary division to probe the allegation, which was highlighted in an English daily on Sunday. 

“We have recorded statements from the victim and the reporter, who witnessed the incident.  

“But the victim told us that the incident was near Taman Connaught while the reporter said it happened at the Jalan Sungai Besi flyover,” said DCP Dell, adding that they had claimed that the policemen were in blue uniforms. 

“We also have to find out whether it was really a police patrol car. Then we have to trace the vehicle which passed by that area as the victim and witnesses could not provide us with the number plate,” he said. 

According to the daily, on Sept 4, 25-year-old motorcyclist Hussein Hassan was injured in an accident at 11.20pm.  

He had claimed that a Honda Civic car had suddenly changed lanes in front of him without giving any signal, and then he lost consciousness. 

The daily also said scores of motorists stopped to help the victim, but a police patrol car with two men in it sped off.  

Neither the victim nor the car owner lodged a police report.
