PETALING JAYA: The victim involved in a brawl in Ampang on Merdeka (Aug 31) night, of which Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak (pic) is the main suspect, has withdrawn his police report, says Senior Asst Comm Fadzil Ahmat.

The Selangor CID chief said the complainant lodged a separate report to retract his initial report on Thursday (Sept 5), but police will still refer the matter to the Attorney General's Chambers for further action.

"Farhash, who is the main suspect, has yet to turn himself in and I urge him to do so as soon as possible to assist in the investigation," he said when contacted on Saturday (Sept 7).

Four of the men who were detained earlier this week in the course of the investigation will be released on police bail, while the fifth will be handed over to the Cheras police district headquarters for a separate drug-related offence today (Sept 7), he added.

"The five men were initially detained and remanded earlier this week to assist in the investigation. All five are Muay Thai coaches.

"Four of them will be released on police bail today whole another will be handed to Cheras police as he is wanted for a drug offence," he said.

It was reported that Farhash, who is also PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's political secretary, said he would aid police in their investigations into the brawl on Aug 31 after he was made aware of a police report on the matter in which his brother was named.

The fight started when one man pushed another at a sports complex in Ampang.

The management was, however, able to stop the fight from escalating.

Unfortunately, the matter didn't end there. The two men met again at the venue's motorcycle parking lot and were later joined by 10 other men.

There, the victim was attacked with helmets, knives and chairs.

SAC Fadzil had said the victim's friends tried their best to help but failed and the victim suffered injuries to his waist and genitals.

The case is being investigated under Section 148 of the Penal Code for possessing weapons or missiles at a riot.
