THE 32-year-old sem­i­naked po­lice in­spec­tor, caught barg­ing into the fe­male re­stroom of a mall here on Mon­day, may lose his badge.

A psy­chi­atric eval­u­a­tion car­ried out on the po­lice of­fi­cer con­firmed that he was suf­fer­ing from men­tal ill­ness.

Kedah po­lice chief Datuk Asri Yu­soff said the psy­chi­a­trist con­cluded that the in­spec­tor, who was un­der the in­flu­ence of drugs, was hal­lu­ci­nat­ing when he was caught tres­pass­ing on the re­stroom at 12.30am.

“It is con­firmed that he was hal­lu­ci­nat­ing when he en­tered the re­stroom.

“He was also un­der the in­flu­ence of drugs,” he said yes­ter­day.

Asri said the of­fi­cer may be sacked due to his mis­de­meanour.

He added that the po­lice of­fi­cer had faced dis­ci­plinary prob­lems over the past few years, in­clud­ing go­ing ab­sent with­out of­fi­cial leave for 90 days and fail­ing to sub­mit his re­port of a case he was in­ves­ti­gat­ing.

Asri said po­lice had taken dis­ci­plinary ac­tion against the in­spec­tor, the lat­est be­ing trans­fer­ring him to the state po­lice head­quar­ters In­tegrity and Stan­dard Com­pli­ance Depart­ment for ob­ser­va­tion by his su­pe­ri­ors.

“How­ever, this was the first time he was caught for drug abuse,” he said.

He said as of yes­ter­day, the woman, who ap­peared to be be­rat­ing the in­spec­tor in a video that has gone vi­ral, had yet to lodge a re­port.

It was re­ported that a mo­bile pa­trol unit team, act­ing on a call con­cern­ing a dis­tur­bance caused by a man at the mall, found the in­spec­tor clad only in his un­der­pants at the toi­let.

Found on him was a crys­talline sub­stance weigh­ing 0.62g, be­lieved to be syabu.
