Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) officials have been monitoring the activities of a Road Transport Department (JPJ) state director suspected of soliciting bribes from driving schools and having close relations, or khalwat, with a female senior government official.

Acting on a tip-off that the director would be making his rounds in driving schools, demanding bribes from the driving school operators, ACA officers set up an ambush on Friday at the hotel where he stayed. He allegedly visited karaoke centres and other entertainment centres with his bills settled by the operators.

When the officers saw the JPJ director entering the hotel with the woman early Friday, they contacted the Federal Territory Islamic Religious Council. Officers apprehended the two in the hotel room at 2:30am.
