Selangor CID chief: Police acted on woman, Siti Kasim based on mother's report

PETALING JAYA: The police had acted on activist lawyer Siti Kasim and a woman based on a report by the woman's mother, said Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Fadzil Ahmat (pic).

"This follows a report made by the victim's mother on June 21 that stated that her daughter had been taken away by Siti when she had been undergoing a psychiatrist's exam at the Kajang hospital," said SAC Fadzil.

He added when contacted on Sunday (June 24) that the police had also lodged a report as there was an incident when Siti had tried to enter the examination room despite being stopped by a security guard.

He said that the reports led to the case being classified under Section 363 and 186 of the Penal Code, for kidnapping and obstructing a public servant.

SAC Fadzil said that follow-up investigations led to the arrest on Saturday (June 23) night after the police had received information regarding the woman's whereabouts.

"The victim refused to cooperate and has locked herself in the room. Because of this, the police had to force their way in to ensure she did not injure herself and others," he said.

SAC Fadzil said that the woman has been sent back to the hospital to resume the earlier exam which had been halted.

"The investigating officer will also get a decision from her doctor," he added

SAC Fadzil reiterated that Siti Kassim's arrest earlier was made under Section 186 of the Penal Code for obstructing a public servant in the discharge of his duties.

"Siti has been apprehended at the Kajang police headquarters under Section 186 for obstructing a public servant on duty. A remand order will be obtained," he said.
