KUALA LUMPUR – Police have arrested three men for getting into a scuffle at a premise in Jalan Changkat, Bukit Bintang.
In two videos widely shared on social media, the men were seen hurling chairs at each other and did not wear a face mask.
Dang Wangi District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Noor Dellhan Yahaya said police were alerted of the incident after Twitter user @NanManjoi8715 uploaded the videos.
“This later led to the arrest of three men aged between 32 and 52-years-old by the Criminal Investigation Division II of the Dang Wangi IPD.
“All suspects were remanded for two days starting yesterday (Oct 11) until today to assist investigations, which is being probed under Section 148 of the Penal Code,” he said in a statement.
Noor Dellhan said investigation papers will be submitted to the Public Prosecutor’s Office once investigations are complete.
“The public is advised not to share the video which can cause public unrest.
“Those with further information can contact the Dang Wangi IPD at 03-26002222 or the Kuala Lumpur Police Hotline at 03-21159999 or any nearby police station.”
