At the same time, JIPS Bukit Aman will be carrying out parallel investigations on the wrongdoings and the disciplinary violations of the officers.
On the other hand, the remaining 3 police officers were being pulled from their active duty and assigned administrative work.
According to The Star, all 4 police officers have now been transferred to the Kajang police district headquarters’ administrative division until investigations are completed.

Yesterday, the chief police office from a police station in the Kajang district, along with 3 of his colleagues and 4 women were arrested arrested following a raid by the Bukit Aman JIPS department.
Those arrested are aged between 21 and 37 and they were caught enjoying themselves in the “special room” in the police station while drinking alcohol and air ketum.
The room had been decorated in a way to resemble a disco where they placed a disco-like rotating light. They were caught red handed and the Bukit Aman unit had confiscated liquor bottles, five bottles of ketum, speakers, disco lights, audio amplifier system equipment, recorders, microphones and a TV unit. It is also reported that they a pornographic image of one of the officers with a woman was being found too.
