PETALING JAYA: A 47-year-old actor has been detained following a report by Datuk Farid Kamil over an alleged drug offence.

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zani Che Din said the actor Sofi Jikan (pic) was detained at 11pm on Tuesday (Feb 6) when he went to give his statement at the Mutiara Damansara police station.

“He was giving a statement in connection to a police report lodged by Datuk Farid Kamil.

“We are investigating the case under Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drug Act 1952,” ACP Mohd Zani when contacted.

He added that Sofi will be remanded on Wednesday.

Last week, Farid lodged a report at the Taman Tun Dr Ismail police station alleging that a few individuals had spiked his drink with drugs prior to his altercation with the police in January.

Farid was arrested for allegedly attacking a police officer and a civilian at the Kota Damansara traffic police station on Jan 11.

He claimed trial to the assault charge on Jan 16.

The actor was then charged on Jan 25 with self administering THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), one of the active components in ganja, into his body.

He also pleaded not guilty to the drug charge.
