PETALING JAYA: MyWatch chairman Datuk R. Sri Sanjeevan has lodged a police report denying that he was caught with a police inspector for khalwat (close proximity) during a raid at a luxury hotel in Seremban on June 10.
"I read a tweet from @mamifoo on June 20 saying that I had been caught for khalwat with a police inspector. I wish to stress that the tweet is a lie and I have never been caught for the offence as stated," said Sanjeevan in the police report made on Monday.
In his report made at the Bandar Seri Jempol police station, Sanjeevan wanted police to investigate the person who made the tweet for spreading lies about him.
"I make this report because I believe the person who made the claim is trying to make an allegation to bring down my good name and my family," said Sanjeevan.
Sanjeevan and the inspector, who was reportedly transferred, have not been arrested nor had anything seized from them.
According to a report filed by Bukit Aman's Integrity and Standard Compliance Department (JIPS), the raiding team comprising its officers and the Negri Sembilan Islamic Affairs Department went to two connecting rooms at the hotel at 1.30am.
After identifying themselves, the team waited for 10 minutes before the occupant of Room 1002, who was the inspector attached to the Jempol station, opened the door.
They found the officer fully dressed and wearing a headscarf, while a brassiere was left on a chair, the report said.
The team then went to the other room, 1003, and found Sanjeevan alone and fully clothed. No woman's clothes were found in the room.
The report said the inspector told police she was there to meet Sanjeevan but denied having any intimate relationship.
Seremban OCPD ACP Muhammad Zaki Harun confirmed the report and said the suspects did not commit any crime.
On the transfer of the inspector, he said it was unrelated to the case and transfers were normal procedures within the force.
Sanjeevan, in a WhatsApp reply to The Star Online, confirmed that he was in the hotel but "nothing inappropriate happened."
"All I know I was alone in my room," he said.
