KUALA LUMPUR: PKR youth chief Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad has been remanded for three days for his alleged involvement in organising the #KitaLawan rally on Saturday, City police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Tajuddin Md Isa said.

“He has been remanded to help in the investigations. We will also be calling in the other organisers to give their statements.

“This rally was organised without following the proper procedures according to the law,” he said yesterday.

Nik Nazmi was detained on Sunday morning after police called him in to give a statement at the Dang Wangi police headquarters.

This marks the second time Nik Nazmi has been arrested this year for unlawful assembly.

He was previously detained in February.

On Saturday, groups of protes­ters converged at the Sogo Shopping Complex for the #KitaLawan rally.
