KUALA LUMPUR: The Inspector-General of Police has called the clash between Umno and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia youth wing members at the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) an embarrassment.

Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said those involved should have acted their age.

“They are adults, not children anymore.

“Getting involved in such things is shameful,” he told reporters at Bukit Aman yesterday.

Eleven people have been questioned by police over the Tuesday incident.

It occurred when the Pribumi Youth delegation was en route from Sunway Putra Mall to PWTC at 2.30pm to deliver an invitation letter to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to attend the “Nothing to Hide 2.0” forum featuring Pribumi chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

They were reportedly confronted by Umno Youth members.

A shouting match ensued between Umno Youth exco member Datuk Armand Azha Hanifah and Pribumi Youth information chief Ashraf Mustaqim.

Members of the two parties started shoving each other and exchanging accusations of being samseng (thugs).

The scuffle ended when police stepped in.
