Kajang 'party cops' scandal: Station chief tests positive for ganja

KUALA LUMPUR: The police station chief who was arrested for "partying" with police personnel and four women in a Kajang police station has tested positive for cannabis.

Federal police Integrity and Compliance Department (JIPS) director Datuk Azri Ahmad said the officer, a sub-inspector, tested positive following a urine test.

"The urine sample will be tested again. If it still returns positive, the officer will be investigated according to the law. They will also be suspended," he told Berita Harian today.

On Tuesday evening, a Bukit Aman raid nabbed the station chief, three of his subordinates and four civilian women while they were partying in a special room at his own station in Kajang.

In the raid, conducted by JIPS around 6pm, police also found alcoholic beverages and ketum juice.

The officers and civilians detained were dancing while singing karaoke in the dark room on the second floor of the station, which also had a swivelling disco ball light.

Azmi said Kajang police will investigate the possibility of standard operating procedure (SOP) violations and for any criminal elements.

"JIPS will investigate all four police personnel involved for misconduct and violation of civil service regulations. Action will be taken without any fear or favour," he said.

He said JIPS will not compromise on action against policemen involved in committing any offences or crimes.

"Jangan kerana nila setitik, rosak susu sebelanga (one rotten apple spoils the barrel). This is only a small group which commit these offences.

"They will not be protected. Stern action will be taken against them."
