KUALA LUMPUR, March 25 — Police have cleared Datuk Seri Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz’s son of any involvement in a scuffle involving his bodyguard and a security guard.
The Star reported that Brickfields district police chief ACP Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid said yesterday “it is a clear cut case” involving the security guard and Mohamad Nedim’s bodyguard.
“This is a minor case. We have already forwarded the investigation papers to the DPP (deputy public prosecutor). I do not know why and how another person (Mohamad Nedim) was dragged into this,’’ the English daily quoted him as saying.
The MCA-controlled newspaper also reported that the case was investigated under Section 160 of the Penal Code for committing affray.
Several online news portals had reported the allegation against Nedim with opposition leaders calling on the police to investigate the matter impartially.
The incident allegedly occurred at a plush condominium at Mont Kiara on Tuesday night.
This is the second time the minister in the prime minister department’s son has alleged to be involved in a violent crime.
In 2004, Nedim was accused of being involved in the death of Darren Kang, a student who was studying law in the United Kingdom, who was killed in Sri Hartamas.
De facto law minister Nazri admitted that his son was in the area but insisted he had nothing to do with the crime, in which five Thai foodstall workers eventually pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of manslaughter.
