PETALING JAYA: A Road Transport Department (JPJ) officer who allegedly sexually harassed a teenage girl during a driving test has been transferred to another section pending an investigation.
JPJ deputy director-general (operations) Datuk Wan Ahmad Uzir Wan Sulaiman (pic) said the decision was made after receiving a report of the incident.
"We have moved the officer to another section that does not involve driving tests pending the investigation.
"The case will be investigated by the Selangor JPJ's integrity division," Wan Ahmad Uniz told mStar on Saturday.
The Star's Malay news portal had reported that the girl, supposedly the niece of a politician, had alleged that she was sexually harassed at a driving institute in Shah Alam on Wednesday.
Wan Ahmad Uzir said the case was still being investigated.
"We cannot mete out any punishment because the officer has not been found guilty.
"We will wait for the result of the investigation," he said.
The 17-year-old girl alleged that the officer had asked her if she had a boyfriend and asked for her phone number. She also alleged that the officer asked her improper questions after noticing that she had a nose ring.
"He asked me if I had any piercing 'down there' too. I told him to stop as I was not comfortable.
"After that he asked me if I had any sexy pictures, I told him that I didn't and tried to stay calm as I did not want to fail my test," she alleged.
The officer, who was sitting in the front passenger seat, was also alleged to have shown the girl a sex video on his phone.
