IPOH: A video clip of a motorcyclist running into the motorcycle of a police officer was an old incident which occurred on April 26 and was also unintentional, says Supt Mohd Hasni Mohd Nasir.

The Mualim OCPD said two personnel from the motorcycle patrol unit (URB) were heading towards the Pos Bersih Orang Asli settlement in Slim Village on the day of the incident after receiving a report of an accident.

"En route, the URB personnel asked a group of local residents for the exact location of the accident and while heading to the scene, a motorcycle ridden by a villager who was following behind accidentally hit the back of the URB personnel's motorcycle,” he said.

He said the collision did not cause any damage and was resolved amicably.

Therefore, he advised the public against making any speculations and negative perceptions of the police force that could tarnish the image of the PDRM.

On Monday (Sept 19), a short video clip of the incident had gone viral on social media, with some negative comments from internet users. - Bernama
