IPOH: The helicopter that brought 36 packets of "nasi ganja" from Ipoh to Kuala Lumpur had permission to cross state borders for maintenance, says Perak police chief Datuk Comm Mior Faridalathrash Wahid

He added that the permission did not extend to picking up food.

“The police recorded statements from complainants, the food seller, the owner of the helicopter and all those involved," said Comm Mior Faridalathrash in a statement on Tuesday (July 27).

“We have also obtained the statement from the police officer who gave the permit,” he added.

Comm Mior Faridalathrash said the case was being investigated under Section 16 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act.

“Investigations are still ongoing and the investigating papers will be submitted to the Deputy Public Prosecutor’s office for the next course of action.

“The people should also not manipulate what had been published on the news but to read and understand the entire article to avoid speculations that could disturb the investigations,” he added.

The owner of the helicopter, Mohamed Raffe Chekku, had reportedly said that the trip and landing at Padang Ipoh to pick up 36 packets of nasi ganja was made with the necessary papers in order.
