KOTA BARU: A Pakistani man was arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), after trying to bribe a police officer when stopped at a roadblock in Tumpat, here, early Saturday (March 2) morning.

According to a source, the man, in his 30s, was arrested at 1.20am today while driving a van with a fellow countryman.

He said that the case is being investigated under Section 17 (b) of the MACC Act 2009.
