MALACCA: The police will submit their investigation papers to the deputy public prosecutor next week on the alleged gun-drawing incident involving the bodyguard of Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Malacca police chief SAC Datuk Chuah Ghee Lye said the police would first review video footages submitted by witnesses before the investigation papers are presented to the DPP’s office.

“We are reassessing the footages and will summon the bodyguard to record his statement, based on the video clip,” SAC Chuah said here yesterday.

SAC Chuah said police investigators had also recorded statements of several witnesses at the site of the alleged incident site.

He added that the police had also received a four-minute video recording of a PKR function at Kampung Baru Rim in Jasin, near here, on Saturday.

He said the video, belonging to a 29-year-old local-based blogger, was surrendered to the Jasin district police at 6pm on Monday.

SAC Chuah thanked those who came forward to help in the investigations.

In the incident, the bodyguard had reportedly flashed a gun at a group of men in the village at some time between 3.40pm and 4pm on Saturday.

Some men were reported to be putting up banners when a bus carrying Anwar and officials fom the PKR passed by as a part of a convoy.

There were claims that the men tried to block the convoy, resulting in the bodyguard drawing out his gun and pointing it at them.
