KUALA TERENGGANU: A snooker centre owner has alleged that a group of 13 men, including three claiming to be policemen, damaged the centre’s 24 snooker tables on Monday night.  

Poh Keat Chooi, 38, who operates the centre at Plaza Perdana here said the group earlier chased away about 50 customers from the premises.  

According to him, the men used two knives to slash the material covering the snooker tables, which were imported from Britain.  

The men, he added, damaged his furniture and cue sticks, with losses estimated at RM30,000. 

“Three men in plainclothes claimed they were policemen and asked to see my identity card. 

“Later, another man threatened me by pointing a knife at my chest,” he said yesterday, adding that he had lodged a police report. 

State deputy CID chief Deputy Supt Ahmad Saad said police were investigating the case under Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation. 

“Our investigations show that the three men were impersonating policemen,” he said.
