Cops: Farhash must surrender


PETALING JAYA: Perak PKR chief Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak is still required to surrender to the police despite the victim in a brawl in Ampang on Merdeka night had withdrawn his police report, says Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Fadzil Ahmat.

He said Farhash must turn himself in as soon as possible.

“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 investigations.

“The complainant lodged a separate report on Thursday to withdraw his initial report. But we will refer the matter to the Attorney General’s Chambers for further action,” he said yesterday.

He added that four men who were detained earlier this week in the course of the investigations have been released on police bail, while another had been handed over to the Cheras police district headquarters for a separate drug-related offence yesterday.

“The five men were initially detained and remanded earlier this week to assist in investigations.

“All five men are Muay Thai coaches,” he said.

It was reported that Farhash, who is also political secretary to PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, said he would assist 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 allegedly 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 did not 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 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.
