PETALING JAYA: “My son is just like everyone else and is not above the law,” says Mohamad Sabu after his son was picked up by the police for a drug-related offence.

The Defence Minister confirmed that his son Ahmad Saiful Islam Mohamad was the one arrested during an anti-vice raid in the city on Saturday and tested positive for drugs.

“Following this arrest, my family and I have left the matter entirely to the authorities to act in accordance with the process of the law,” he said in a statement.

It is learnt that Ahmad Saiful was picked up by a joint team involving the Dang Wangi Narcotics Crime Investigation Department and its Secret Society, Gaming and Vice Division (D7). The raid was conducted early Saturday along the Jalan Ampang area.

Sources close to the investigations confirmed that he tested positive for marijuana.

He was among the 101 people who were screened during the anti-vice raid.

It is known that he was among two who were detained for testing positive for drugs.

Kuala Lumpur deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Zainuddin Yaakob confirmed that both men were released on police bail around 6pm.

The case is being investigated under Section 15(1)(A) of the Dangerous Drug Act 1952 for drug abuse.
