THE chief of a police station was nabbed in a raid by Bukit Aman along with three of his officers and four civilian women while they were partying in a special room at his own police station in the district of Kajang in Selangor yesterday evening.
The raid was conducted by a team from Bukit Aman’s Integrity and Standard Compliance department (JIPS) at 6pm following a public tip-off.
There were also alcoholic beverages and ketum juice found in the room located on the second floor of the station.
The officers and the civilians detained were dancing while singing karaoke in the dark room which also had a swivelling disco ball light.
The officers detained were a sub-inspector (station chief), two corporals and a support corporal. The civilians were aged between 21 and 37.
The JIPS team also seized bottles of liquor, speakers, disco light, audio system equipment, recorder, microphones and a television.
Also seized were five bottles of ketum juice and an obscene photograph believed to be of one of the officers detained with a woman.
Bukit Aman JIPS director Datuk Azri Ahmad confirmed the incident, saying the arrests were made based on a clear violation of conduct.
He said what they had done, which was partying at a room in a police station while singing karaoke was against the standard operating procedures (SOP) put in place to combat Covid-19.
“We will not compromise with anyone if it is found they had broke the rules or SOPs set,” he said when contacted.
Investigation into the case is being conducted including taking action under Section 269 of the Penal Code for negligent acts that could spread an infectious disease. – NST
