KUALA LUMPUR: ‘Discoteque police station.’ That title can be given to the act of making a room in a police station in the Kajang district as an entertainment location.
Following the action, a Police Station Chief (OCS) along with three of his subordinates and four women members of the public were arrested yesterday.
The raid at about 6pm was made by the Bukit Aman Integrity and Standards Compliance Department (JIPS) following public information.
The suspects were arrested while dancing and entertaining themselves with liquor and drinking ketum juice in a room on the second floor of the station.
The atmosphere of the room is unlike a disco with the rotating lights and loud music.
The raiding team detained an OCS with the rank of Sub-Inspector, two Corporals and a Support Corporal as well as four women civilians aged between 21 and 37 years.
The raid also confiscated liquor bottles, speakers, disco lights, audio amplifier system equipment, recorders, microphones and televisions.
In addition, five bottles containing ketum juice as well as pornographic pictures of one of the members detained, along with a woman were also confiscated.
Meanwhile, JIPS Director Datuk Azri Ahmad said the police took seriously the misconduct committed by members of the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM).
He said the raid was made to ensure that the police station was not polluted with immoral activities.
“I confirm the raids and arrests carried out by JIPS Bukit Aman as a result of public information.
“Police will conduct further investigations into the incident and stern action will be taken against the suspects involved,” he told Harian Metro.
He said the case was being investigated under Section 269 of the Penal Code for negligent acts that could possibly cause the infection of any infectious disease that could endanger life.
