Police start probe on case involving cop hitting motorcyclist, video of incident being circulated


PETALING JAYA: A video has been circulating on social media platforms and WhatsApp depicting a policeman hitting a motorcyclist.

The 37-second video appears to be taken along the Federal Highway near the Sunway Interchange.

The video shows a motorcycle stopping behind a police patrol car, and two traffic policemen are seen talking to the motorcyclist who is seated on his bike.

About nine seconds into the video, the motorcyclist removes his helmet before one of the policemen takes a swing at him before walking back.

Another policeman can be seen still talking to the motorcyclist while pointing a red flag at him.

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal confirmed the incident.

"Both the personnel and the victim in the video have been identified. The policemen had lodged a report explaining his actions while the victim has yet to lodge a report," he said, adding that an investigation into the case has been initiated.

"Our stand has been consistent, that any wrongdoing will be investigated carefully and action will be taken swiftly, according to the forces’ rules and regulations, and the law," he said.

Meanwhile, in a statement released later, ACP Nik Ezanee said investigations revealed the policemen were conducting a roadblock at the motorcycle lane along KM28.3 of the Federal Highway.

"A local motorcyclist and his wife tried to evade the roadblock and hit the leg of one of the policemen there before they were stopped.

"The motorcyclist was issued summonses for not using the motorcycle lane, not having a valid licence and had an expired road tax," he said, adding that checks revealed the motorcyclist also had 58 previous summonses for various traffic violations.
