Three separate police reports have been lodged in relation to the claim by businessman Khoo Gin Seong that he was assaulted by a drunk plainclothes police officer. The first report was lodged by police against Khoo for causing damage at a restaurant in Bukit Sentosa, Hulu Selangor district police chief Norel Azmi Affandi Yahya said late last night.
"Complainant Korporal 111668 Aziz, along with three other personnel of the Bukit Sentosa police station had about 8.20pm on Jan 20 arrested a Chinese man who was drunk. "The man had broken two plastic chairs using a saw, and broke glasses and a liquor bottle at a Chinese restaurant," Norel Azmi said in response to questions from Malaysiakini. He said the 44-year-old businessman was taken to the Bukit Sentosa police station along with some seized items, where an agreement was brokered between Khoo's wife and the restaurant owner.
Owner Lee Lai Fong accepted RM200 as compensation payment from Khoo's wife, in exchange for no police action against her husband, and a police report was lodged on the agreement.
Police had initially opened investigation papers based on Kpl Aziz's report under Section 427 of the Penal Code, which deals with committing mischief resulting in damage worth more than RM25. The third police report was lodged by Khoo on Saturday morning, alleging that he was assaulted by police and had RM1000 taken from him.
Different versions of the incident
Yesterday, the businessman told the media that he was assaultedby a drunken plainclothes police officer and other policemen in a coffee shop in Bukit Sentosa, resulting in him suffering bodily injuries and a broken denture. Khoo said this was took place after the police officer, named only as 'Mansur', was irritated by him as he was gambling and drinking noisily at the next table. He said police pocketed RM1,000, which he won in the card game, and took him to the Bukit Sentosa police station where he was detained until the police were paid several hundred ringgit brought by his friends.
DAP MP for Segambut Lim Lip Eng, who called the press conference upon Khoo's request, said police informed him that the businessman's complaint was being investigated under Section 323 and 325 of the Penal Code, which deals with voluntarily causing hurt.
