A superintendent police officer in his 50s has been remanded for three days by Selangor Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) investigators yesterday for allegedly accepting a RM75,000 bribe as inducement to not take action against a vehicle theft syndicate.

Earlier, it is believed that the officer was arrested for involvement in a luxury vehicle theft case where individual vehicle parts were found in a warehouse in Gombak. After police arrested the syndicate’s mastermind, he allegedly offered the officer a bribe to be set free. The mastermind was later banished to a remote location under the Emergency Ordinance.

The mastermind later lodged a police report claiming that the officer had taken the bribe.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said he was waiting for a report from the ACA before deciding on the disciplinary action to take.
