KUALA LUMPUR: Sentul police have recorded statements from two individuals who claimed they were extorted by police.

Sentul OCPD Asst Comm Beh Eng Lai (pic) said they took statements from the two, who came forward on Sunday (June 6).

"One of them also lodged a police report on the matter.

"Investigations are ongoing under Section 384 of the Penal Code for extortion," he said when contacted on Tuesday (June 8).

He said they would also be calling Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng to record his statement.

"We will inform him officially under the provisions of Section 111 of the Criminal Procedure Code to give his statement," he said.

On Sunday, Lim held a press conference in front of a coffee shop with two individuals who claimed they were extorted by three police personnel.

The victims claimed the incident occurred at the Jalan Besar Kampung Melayu, Kepong traffic light at around 6.45am on June 2.

ACP Beh said police viewed these allegations seriously and would not hesitate to take stern action against the three personnel if the allegations were true.

He urged anyone with information on the case to contact Insp Noramalina Md Jamil at 017-318 5868 or the Sentul police operations room at 03-40482206.
