SHAH ALAM, Oct 30 — The man with the title “Datuk Seri” who was alleged to have assaulted three members of the People’s Volunteer Corps (Rela) at a temple in Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur, last Friday, has been detained by the police.
Selangor Criminal Investigation Department head SAC Fadzil Ahmad said the 29-year-old suspect was arrested about 4 pm today when he surrendered himself at the Ampang district police station.
The police will request for an order from the Ampang Magistrate’s Court tomorrow to remand him for investigation under Section 324 of the Penal Code for voluntary causing hurt and Section 186 of the same law for obstructing the public servants from discharging their duties, he said in a statement today.
In the 6.30am incident last Friday, the three Rela members — Melvin Cheong Mun Khai, 19, Lee Weng Poh, 27, and Leong Jiun Jie, 21, — were injured on the head, eye and abdomen, when allegedly hit and kicked by the “Datuk Seri” man.
It happened after the RELA members requested the man to move his Toyota Vellfire as the vehicle was obstructing traffic, but the man refused to do so. — Bernama
