Deputy IGP says aware of false accusations made in attempt to bring him down

KUALA LUMPUR: Defamed with unfounded claims, Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay said he is prepared to be investigated over any wrongdoings that allegedly involves him.

He said in the course of carrying out his duties as the second-in-command of the police force, he is aware of such false accusations made by certain parties that are attempting to bring him down.

"Please investigate me and all my family members, I have no problem." he said during an event at the Farmers Organisation Authority office here.

Ayob Khan did not disclose details of the claims made against him.

However, he said a leader should have the courage to rebuke or take action on his subordinates and not turn a blind eye to their wrongdoings just to remain popular.

"If there are wrongdoings involving police personnel, especially corruption, I will not spare them and action will definitely be taken against them.

"As long as I have been entrusted with this responsibility, I will fulfil it." he said.

He said among others who were similarly targeted was Dang Wangi police chief ACP Noor Dellhan Yahaya who "certain parties were trying to replace with their own people".

Ayob Khan said prior to taking over as Johor police chief in 2020, he had been "advised" by certain police officers to turn a blind eye to "certain things" that were unlawful.
