Police investigating two incidents of alleged wrongdoings by cops

KUALA LUMPUR: The police are investigating two incidents of alleged wrongdoings by police personnel in Kuala Lumpur and Penang, which have since gone viral.

The first incident involved a woman in Penang, who claimed that a policeman had asked for her phone number when she was stopped at a roadblock. He subsequently contacted her to get to know her.

The other incident involved another woman who claimed that a police personnel had allegedly inappropriately criticised her for not wearing a bra when she was stopped at a roadblock at Jalan Duta.

Both women shared their experiences and allegations on social media platforms.

Bukit Aman Integrity and Standard Compliance Department (JIPS) director Comm Datuk Zamri Yahya said Kuala Lumpur and Penang police are investigating both incidents while being monitored by JIPS.

"The investigation involved identifying the police personnel involved based on the statements that have been obtained.

"Bukit Aman has also contacted both complainants to get further details on the police personnel involved to assist the investigation by JIPS," he said when contacted on Saturday (Feb 13).

Appropriate action will be taken against the police personnel involved if the allegations prove to be true, he added.

"The offences described by the complainants are serious misconduct that could tarnish the image of the police force," he said.

Comm Zamri also reminded all police officers and personnel to be professional.

"Don't do or say anything that is beyond the official job scope," he said.
