Junior partner: ACP Mohd Zani checking on Muhammad Alif Aqil at the Damansara police station before the joyride.

PETALING JAYA: With sirens blaring and lights flashing, a police patrol car took leukaemia patient, eight-year old Muhammad Alif Aqil Shaiful Azhar, on a ride around the neighbourhood of Bangsar.

The boy’s face lit up with delight when he stepped into the car at the Damansara police station yesterday.

The boy, who had always wanted to be a policeman, got his wish granted when both the police and the non-governmental body, Make a Wish, worked together to fulfil it.

Muhammad Alif Aqil said he wanted to be a policeman because he really admired Inspector Sani from the movie Polis Evo.

“I want to be like him and fight crime,” he said.

Muhammad Alif Aqil was diagnosed with leukaemia about a year ago and is receiving treatment at Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL).

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zani Che Din said the police were informed by the doctors at HKL about the young boy’s wish.

“The first time such an event was held was in 2012 and today is the second time. We hope that there will be more in the future,” he said before flagging off the police patrol car.

The Sekolah Kebangsaan Bangsar student was later brought to Kidzania in Mutiara Damansara with his family members to ensure his day was made even more memorable.
