THE sight of a shuttered police beat base in Bandar Puteri, Klang, has become a sore point for residents there, Tamil Nesan reported.

Resident S. Arumugam said the beat base at a shoplot in Jalan Sanggul began operations in 2010. The base reported to the Klang Selatan Police District Headquarters.

A few years ago, the station was “temporarily” closed.

“But it never re-opened,” said Arumugam.

When residents raised the issue at a discussion with the police force two years ago, there was no answer forthcoming.

Fed up, residents called on Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar and Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to intervene and reopen the beat base.

Arumugam said police should at least remove the “Pondok Polis” sign above the shoplot.

“It merely serves as a reminder of the community’s helplessness.”

Eleven-year-old G. Murugan of Dindigul was reportedly trying to cool down by splashing himself with a bottle of what he thought was water.

Unfortunately, the bottle contained concentrated acid which was to be used on his father’s farm.

The boy was admitted to a hospital with extensive burns to his torso and legs but is reported to be stable.
