JOHOR BARU: A second scandal involving Johor police has emerged, with claims that a policeman from the Segamat patrol unit was photographed flirting with a woman, believed to be a prostitute, while on duty in a police patrol car on Sunday.

Images of the policeman holding the hands of the woman – dressed in “hot pant” shorts and a black singlet – as he sat in his patrol car have gone viral on social media.

Johor police chief Datuk Mohd Khalil Kader Mohd said the policeman involved has been removed from the patrol unit with immediate effect, pending an investigation.

The first scandal involving Johor police surfaced on Sunday with a viral video of seven Muar policemen having fun with and illegal gambling “taukeh” at an entertainment centre in the city. They have all been transferred to the state police headquarters, pending a probe. -- Bernama
