KUALA LUMPUR: The police have confirmed that reports have been received of Armed Forces personnel being pelted with bottles, rubbish and even vases at the Selangor Mansion and Malayan Mansion flats.
However, Kuala Lumpur police chief Comm Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim said there was no truth to a report that some residents had thrown bags of urine at Armed Forces personnel.
"We received the report on Wednesday (April 8) that some residents had thrown various objects at Armed Forces personnel, including vases and bags of rubbish.
"No one was injured and security at the area is under control," he said in a statement on Friday (April 10) night.
He was commenting on an article in a Malay daily which claimed that Armed Forces personnel were wearing helmets to protect themselves from bags of urine being thrown at them.
Comm Mazlan said military personnel wearing helmets is in accordance with their standard operating procedure.
"We are investigating the matter under Section 511 of the Penal Code and Section 324 of the Penal Code, which is an attempt to cause hurt to civil servants.
"We have since recorded the statement of the complainant and we will investigate further," he said, adding that stern action would be taken against anyone throwing objects at security personnel.
"We hope everyone will give their full cooperation and abide by the movement control order (MCO). The ultimate goal is to break the chain of virus transmission," Comm Mazlan said.
