KUALA LUMPUR: The "Datuk Seri" who allegedly assaulted three People's Volunteer Corps (Rela) members has been remanded for four days from Tuesday to help with investigation.

This was confirmed by Selangor CID chief Senior Assistant Comm Fadzil Ahmat.

The 29-year-old businessman's remand comes after police arrested him when he arrived at the Ampang Jaya police headquarters on Monday (Oct 30) evening, four days after police urged the suspect to give himself up.

The suspect, clad in a white shirt embroidered with the Winner Dynasty Group emblem, jeans and sandals, was seen entering the Ampang magistrate's court at around 11am on Tuesday.

He was easily identified by pressmen by his copper-dyed hair.

Two men, believed to be his companions, were also seen waiting in the vicinity as pressmen took videos and photos.

The case is being investigated for deterring a public servant from discharging his duties and voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means.

On Friday (Oct 27), three Rela members on security duty during a religious ceremony at Kout Ong Yah temple in Kampung Baru Ampang were allegedly roughed up by the "Datuk Seri".

In the 6.30am incident, one of the three had told the "Datuk Seri" that his car, which was parked right in front of the temple, was causing traffic congestion.

However, this eventually led to him and two other members who came forward to defuse the situation, to be beaten.

The three made a police report at the Ampang police station before heading to a nearby hospital for treatment.
