IGP: San­jee­van act­ing out of spite

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KUALA LUMPUR: Po­lice have re­futed al­le­ga­tions by MyWatch chair­man Datuk R. Sri San­jee­van on cor­rup­tion in­volv­ing po­lice top brass, say­ing it was done out of spite over ac­tion against him.

In­spec­tor-Gen­eral of Po­lice Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said: “I will not re­spond to his des­per­a­tion. He has made a re­port with the Malaysian Anti-Cor­rup­tion Com­mis­sion and I leave it to them.”

San­jee­van had lodged a re­port al­leg­ing a high-rank­ing po­lice of­fi­cer owned a RM5.5 mil­lion mansion in Mantin, Ne­gri Sem­bi­lan, and called for the of­fi­cer to be in­ves­ti­gated.

Since his ar­rest in June for al­legedly ex­tort­ing RM25,000 from a busi­ness­man, San­jee­van had taken the po­lice to task.

He was re-ar­rested for other of­fences after his re­lease and was later charged with sev­eral of­fences, in­clud­ing ex­tor­tion.
