One of the policemen was given 30 stitches to treat his injury.

PETALING JAYA: Three policemen on duty were injured after up to 10 drunken men assaulted them in Bangsar near here.

The three policemen were at the Jalan Telawi area at about 4.30am Saturday when an unidentified man, who had come out of a nearby nightspot, came up to them and started a ruckus.

Sources said that the man started shouting at the policemen before around 10 men appeared, armed with sticks and bottles.

It is believed that the man was drunk at the time.

"One of the men was heard saying, 'Berani u kacau 36' (If you dare, mess with 36)," said the source.

Gang 36 is a known criminal organisation.

The trio identified themselves as policemen but the group attacked them anyway.

The attackers only stopped after one of the policemen drew his firearm.

One of the policemen required at least 30 stitches in his head due to injuries suffered during the attack.

It is learnt that he is in stable condition and was allowed to leave the hospital.

Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Shahrul Othman confirmed the incident.

"As of now there have been no arrests but we have identified the suspects," he said.

ACP Shahrul added that the case was being investigated under Section 148 of the Penal Code for rioting with weapons.
