KUALA LUMPUR: Police have not submitted their investigation papers on the alleged assault of Datuk Sharifah Aini to the Attorney-General’s Chambers. 

Police have only submitted the investigation papers relating to the “hate email” and death threats sent to Sharifah Aini, Siti Nurhaliza and several senior entertainment journalists. 

Federal Police CID director Comm Datuk Musa Hassan said at Bukit Aman yesterday that he had yet to receive the file from Selangor police personnel who were conducting investigations. 

He also refused to speculate whether there was a possibility that the veteran singer might be charged in court for lodging a false police report. 

On Oct 14, Sharifah Aini claimed that two men on a motorcycle had assaulted her and injected an unknown substance into her back in front of Sri Pentas in Bandar Utama. 

However, tapes from closed-circuit television cameras showed only Sharifah Aini’s car. There was no sign of a motorcycle or the two men. 

No needle mark was also found on Sharifah Aini’s body and a blood test conducted by the National Poisons Centre at Universiti Sains Malaysia in Penang had also failed to detect any toxins in her. 

Earlier, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohd Bakri Omar handed over Hari Raya and Deepavali goodies to directors, commanders, commandants and chiefs of all police departments and squads at the Federal Police headquarters in Bukit Aman here. 

The goodies would be delivered to 4,000 police personnel who were unable to go home for the coming festive seasons celebrations. 

On an allegation by Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Noh Omar that 30 police officers were “spies” of entertainment outlets, Bakri said they were still investigating the claim. 

“Let us verify the allegation first,” he said, adding that he would confirm whether the contacts were established for official or personal interests. 

Last month, Noh Omar had handed over a list of names and telephone numbers of policemen, mainly from the narcotics and anti-vice divisions of the City Police headquarters, who were said to have been tipping off entertainment outlets on police raids.
