A police station chief was among four officers arrested for having a party at their own police station in Kajang, yesterday evening.
Bukit Aman Integrity and Standards Compliance Department (JIPS) director Azri Ahmad said four local women were also arrested in the raid at about 6pm.
“I confirm that the Bukit Aman JIPS raided a police station in the Kajang district yesterday.
“All eight individuals, aged between 21 and 54, are being investigated for violating the SOPs for movement control under the National Recovery Plan while the four policemen involved are also facing disciplinary action,” he said when contacted today.
It is understood that in yesterday’s raid, four policemen with the rank of sub-inspector, two corporals and a support corporal along with four women were arrested while partying in a special room at the police station.
It is also understood that during the raid, police confiscated several bottles of water suspected to be ketum juice, liquor, speakers, disco lights, a microphone and a television.
The room was understood to be dark, lit only by the disco lights, while those in it were dancing and singing karaoke.
Azri said the actions of the police personnel and members of the public involved had breached Covid-19 SOPs. He said there would be no compromise and that stern action would be taken against any person who violates the SOPs outlined by the government.
Further investigations are still underway, he said, adding that JIPS is conducting investigations into misconduct and indiscipline while the relevant divisions are also conducting their own investigations.
