Student charged with obstructing police inspection in Ampang

AMPANG: An 18-year-old vocational college student was charged at the magistrate's court today with obstructing policemen from conducting inspection on him in Ampang last Thursday.

Muhammad Danish Darwisyh Ali Cakir, who fled from three policemen, pleaded guilty when the charge was read to him before magistrate Normaizan Ramli.

He had committed the offence of deliberately obstructing the policemen from discharging their duties at about 4.50am along Jalan Ampang Saujana, here.

The offence under Section 186 of the Penal Code carries jail of up to two year, or fine up to RM10,000 or both.

Deputy public prosecutor Norhidayah Abdullah Sani said the accused is a young offender and a social report needed to be submitted to the court.

She urged the court to set bail at RM4,000.

In mitigation, Mohd Faiz Fahmy Abdul Razak of the National Legal Aid Foundation said the accused is only aged 18 and an automotive student.

"His parents are low-income earners and the accused has two other siblings.

"The bail sum offered is beyond their financial capacity. I ask it to be at the lowest amount possible," said.

Magistrate Normaizan set bail at RM2,000 with one surety.

The court fixed Jan 31, 2024, for the submission of the social report.
