IPOH: A senior police officer who was involved in a khalwat (close proximity) case with a 31-year-old woman early this month has been transferred to the federal police headquarters at Bukit Aman in Kuala Lumpur. 

Disclosing this, Perak state police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Asari Mokhtar said the officer, a deputy district police chief in his 50s with the rank of superintendent, was transferred after the alleged incident on Sept 2. 

“Bukit Aman will now deal with his case,” DCP Asari said, adding that no court action has yet been taken against the alleged offender as the case was still under investigation. 

It would be up to Bukit Aman to take action against the police officer if he is charged and found guilty of the offence, DCP Asari told reporters after attending a farewell ceremony for his deputy, SAC I Datuk Kamalul Azmi Darus, who retires today.  

On another matter, DCP Asari said Perak police have received 56 reports from January to September of loan sharks intimidating their borrowers. Forty-three of the cases were reported here.
