Prince probed for assaulting woman friend

KUALA LUmpUR: A member of a royal family is being investigated for allegedly assaulting a woman recently. 

Initial investigations showed that the woman, in her 20s, was beaten up after she supposedly two-timed the prince. 

The woman, who claimed that she had earlier tried to lodge a police report in the state, was forced to report the matter to the Federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman as no one in the state wanted to accept her report. 

It has also been learnt that a married narcotics police officer, supposedly involved with the woman, was transferred within 24 hours to Sarawak to carry out desk duties. 

The prince has also lodged a police report. 

Police have begun investigations into the case and are said to be in the process of recording statements from witnesses.
