PETALING JAYA: Nineteen policemen and a court official were among 47 people arrested by Bukit Aman in a raid.

Its Integrity and Standard Compliance Department (JIPS) arrested the group early Monday (Oct 14).

"The raid was conducted with the Kuala Lumpur Narcotic Crimes Investigation Department around 1am, at an entertainment outlet along Jalan Raja Chulan," said JIPS director Comm Datuk Zamri Yahya.

"Of the 47,19 were policemen and eight tested positive for drugs via a urine test.

"The suspects included two civil servants, an assistant registrar and a soldier," he said when contacted.

The detainees have been brought to Dang Wangi police headquarters for further investigations.

"Besides taking lawful action, JIPS will take disciplinary action against the 19 policemen for going against orders to not visit entertainment outlets as instructed by the Inspector-General of Police," he said.

Earlier in the year, IGP Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador announced that policemen were barred from visiting entertainment and gaming outlets, in an effort to reduce corruption within the force.
