KUALA LUMPUR: Dengkil state assemblyman Adhif Syan Abdullah dismissed reports alleging he was arrested over a drug offence during a police raid at an entertainment outlet in Damansara, Petaling Jaya, on Sunday morning.

He said he would issue a press statement soon to clarify the matter.

When contacted, the 39-year-old, who is also the Selangor Bersatu Youth chief, said he was at his home in Pulau Meranti, Puchong.

Adhif said he would also lodge a police report on the allegations that had spread on social media.

“If you are referring to the page that has gone viral, that is fake,” said Adhif.

Earlier today, viral posts claimed that a Selangor state assemblyman, and four other political special officers were among 17 individuals who were arrested by the police in an operation.

The individuals, aged between 26 and 53, were believed to have been arrested at 4.45pm at a condominium unit along Jalan Puchong.

The earlier report claimed the arrests came after police went to check on a complaint about noise disturbance coming from the condominium unit where a private party was being held.

“After inspection, police found substances believed to be drugs and cigarettes filled with weed. Sixteen individuals were tested positive for drugs.”
