Insp Sheila's lawyer Anis Salihah Abdul Malek then asked the court to fix new hearing dates as the lead counsel, M. Manoharan, has to attend another case at the Court of Appeal on June 10 and 11, previously fixed as the hearing dates.

Magistrate Illi Marisqa Khalizan then set July 1 and July 2 as the new hearing dates.

Insp Sheila was accused of causing public harm by being angry, sounding her car horn for a long time and yelling to the point of causing a public nuisance at the parking lot of a shopping mall in the Brickfields district at 5.26pm on June 16.

She was charged under Section 268 of the Penal Code and faces a fine of up to RM400 upon conviction.

She is currently out on bail.
