A 32-year-old inspector was found in his underpants inside a women’s toilet at a mall in Alor Setar on Monday, according to The Star Online. He could face suspension from the police force.
State police chief Commissioner Datuk Asri Yusoff said the inspector, originally from Sarawak, has 6 recorded cases of bad work ethics, including falsifying his medical certificate, taking drugs and failing to report for duty for 90 days. The inspector has been remanded for seven days and was sent for a mental evaluation after he refused to cooperate with the investigation.
Police are still pondering the reason why the inspector entered the women’s toilet clad only in his underpants but said that he was high on methamphetamine when he was arrested. A crystal-like substance weighing about 0.62 grams, believed to be syabu and a police authority card were seized from the inspector.
The police are also waiting for the woman (either a patron or staff of one of the shops in the mall), who appeared in a video berating the suspect, to lodge a report. A video of the incident has gone viral on social media.
