Policemen suspended, transferred for suspect’s escape

Two police officers have been suspended from duty while another transferred with immediate effect for letting a suspect escape at Pasir Tumboh yesterday.

Kelantan police chief Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi said the two Sargeants and Asst Supt of Police (ASP) were hauled up for negligence.

“The two Sargeants and ASP have been placed at Kelantan police headquarters operation room. The ASP will be referred to the Inspector-General of Police for directive to suspend or other form of action,” he told reporters here today.

The police officers were investigated under Section 224 of Penal Code while investigation papers had been opened on the suspect.

Rahim believed that the 33 year-old suspect was still in Machang district where the stolen police Proton Waja was found at 3.30pm.

Members of the public with information can contact Kelantan police at 09-7470999 or Rakan Cop. Police also distributed photographs of the suspect.

The handcuffed suspect escaped in the police car after three police officers left the car to inspect the scene of the crime at Pasir Tumboh.

He drove about 40 kilometres to Pulai Chondong, Machang before abandoning the police car. — Bernama
