Four policemen and four civilian women were recently nabbed in a raid by Bukit Aman while they were partying at a police station in the district of Kajang
According to Berita Harian, the raid took place yesterday, 20 July, at 6pm and it was conducted by a team from Bukit Aman's Integrity and Standard Compliance Department (JIPS).
The team had received a public tip-off prior to the incident and detained a sub-inspector (station chief), two corporals, and a support corporal. Besides that, they also arrested four civilian women aged between 21 and 37.
The officers and civilians were detained while dancing and singing karaoke in a dark room that had a spinning disco ball light.
The JIPS team also found alcoholic beverages and ketum juice in the room they used, which is located on the second floor of the station.
New Straits Times reported that the JIPS team seized bottles of liquor, speakers, a disco light, audio system equipment, recorder, microphones, and a television.
Also seized were five bottles of ketum juice and an obscene photograph of a detained officer with a woman.
Bukit Aman JIPS director Datuk Azri Ahmad confirmed the incident, saying the arrests were made based on a clear violation of conduct
He said that what they did, partying and singing karaoke in a room in a police station, was against the standard operating procedures (SOPs) put in place to combat COVID-19.
He told New Straits Times, "We will not compromise with anyone if it is found they had broken the rules or SOPs set."
Investigations will be carried out under Section 269 of the Penal Code for negligent acts that could spread an infectious disease.
