SHAH ALAM: Police will take action against Sungai Siput MP Dr D. Jeyakumar for allegedly using children in an illegal gathering in Rawang on Monday, Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said.

Thirty people were arrested in the “Cycling for Change” campaign, organised by Jaringan Rakyat Tertindas or Oppressed People Network, including Rawang assembly member Gan Pei Nei.

Khalid said 28 others, aged 18 and below, were brought to the Rawang police station while officers from the Welfare Department contacted their parents to take them home.

He added that Dr Jeyakumar was arrested later after he admitted to having organised the event which had no police permit.

He said those aged 18 and below were considered children under the Child Act 2001. ”The children were never arrested ... we saved them from being exploited,” he said. - Bernama
