KOTA BARU: Two enforcement officers of a uniformed body have been remanded for four days for allegedly soliciting and receiving bribes totalling over RM23,000.

The remand order was issued by Magistrate Ahmad Syafiq Aizat here on Tuesday (May 21).

According to sources, the two were arrested separately at their offices in Pengkalan Chepa here on Monday (May 20) night.

"The first officer, aged 43, was detained at 10.30pm for allegedly asking for and receiving RM13,000 as an inducement to charge a suspect with a lesser offence instead of under Section 39 (C) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952,” said a source.
