PETALING JAYA: Police are investigating if the detention of four women from China at a police roadblock in Sungai Buloh early this month was done according to procedure.
OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Hazam Abdul Halim said an identification parade would be held for the women to pick out the personnel whom they alleged had mistreated them.
The women had accused at least six police personnel two of them women of assault and corruption, forcing them to strip and peeping at them while they bathed.
The women were picked up separately on Nov 3 on suspicion of using invalid travel documents. They claimed they were detained for four days at the district police headquarters here without any court order.
Three of them, aged between 34 and 40, are married to Malaysians while the fourth is a student. All four were released when the Immigration Department confirmed their passports and visas were genuine.
ACP Mohd Hazam said separate investigations were being carried out by them and the federal police's disciplinary division.
At a press conference held by Seputeh MP Teresa Kok yesterday, the women said they did not know the names of the police personnel involved but were confident of being able to identify them.
Two of them initially approached Kok while the other two came forward after their cases were highlighted in the press on Saturday.
The four women lodged a joint report at the district police headquarters here on Sunday after filing a complaint with the federal police disciplinary division.
They also lodged a report with the Anti-Corruption Agency.
