"I confirm that an operation was conducted at the house based on gathered information. However, we deny the allegations of policemen bringing machetes during the raid," said Gombak district police chief ACP Ali Ahmad in a statement Thursday (Feb 1).
"During the raid, the house owner refused to cooperate with the police.
"Two suspects acted aggressively by kicking the policemen while using coarse language.
"Whatever action taken (by the police) are based on the law, as well as on evidence and statements gathered during the investigation process."
He was responding to a report stating that eight plainclothes policemen had conducted a narcotics raid on a house in Selayang, and were armed with machetes in early January.
On Jan 23, two suspects from the raid were charged under Section 186 of the Penal Code for obstruction.
Both pleaded not guilty and have been granted bail.
