SEREMBAN: PKR supreme council member Badrul Hisham Shaharin today lodged a police report against Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan and another police officer from Bukit Aman, Superintendent Maszely Minhad, at Seremban police station here today.
In his report, Badrul Hisham alleged that Maszely abused his power when he detained four persons, including him, for eight hours at the Kuala Kubu Baru police headquarters on April 23. The arrest disrupted his by-election campaign in Hulu Selangor.
" When I was arrested at Kuala Kubu Baru police headquarters, I saw at least five bundles of biodata of PKR candidates and other campaigning materials hidden in the Criminal Investigation Department.
" This is clearly an effort by police to sabotage our campaign", he said.
Meanwhile, Badrul Hisham, who is also known as Chegu Bard, took the police to task for their failure to act swiftly on a "parang" attacker on polling day (April 25).
" When my team and I reached the Sungai Buaya polling centre, we were attacked by a parang-wielding BN supporter.
" Luckily, we able to defend ourselves. But when we are on our way to the nearest police station, our convoy was stopped by Maszely,” Badrul Hisham said, adding that they were then escorted to the Serendah police station.
"There we were detained for 10 hours because we were considered a threat to public order. But the parang attacker was never arrested,” he said.
On another matter, Badrul Hisham said he felt ashamed that Musa said he would pull off his force from the streets following criticism over the fatal shooting of 15-year-old Aminulrasyid Amzah.
"He should accept constructive criticism and improve the police force. I feel ashamed over his unprofessional approach,” he said, adding that Home Minister Hishamuddin Hussein Onn should act against Musa.
