Malaysian Cops Accused Of Assaulting Disabled Driver
In the Saturday afternoon incident, Mohamad Azlan Hashim said he was driving a 10-tonne lorry in the central state of Selangor when a car with two men overtook his vehicle and made him stop.
Fearing they were loan sharks, Azlan alleged that, when he refused to obey their instructions to alight from his vehicle, the two men, who identified themselves as police officers, dragged him out after smashing the lorry's windows and assaulted him, the Star daily reported.
'The car was behind my lorry and I did not even know that I had grazed their vehicle as the vehicle I was driving was very big,' said Azlan, who suffered head and arm injuries from the assault.
District police chief Noor Azam Jamaludin has confirmed that both Azlan and one of the accused policemen had lodged reports. (Monsters & Critics.com)
***** While foreigners may be surprised or shocked by the above report, Malaysians are by now used to news like this. The cops here are really getting out of hand and nobody seems to be in a position to set them straight. What a shame.
