PUTRAJAYA: Four of the five off-duty policemen who crashed a car into the gate of the prime minister's official residence in Putrajaya while sightseeing were discharged yesterday.
Putrajaya district police chief Supt Abdul Razak Abd Majid said the cause of the accident was still being investigated by the traffic division, and the police would be recording statements from the five soon.
"We won't be making any arrest as there was no death involved. But we are waiting to record their statements," he said.
Abdul Razak said urine tests had also been taken from the policemen assigned to Shah Alam, but he refused to divulge the results.
The crash, which occurred at 4am on Saturday, involved a Proton Satria driven by a constable from the Shah Alam police headquarters, and carrying four other constables, all in their 20s.
Police said one of the constables suffered a broken arm, and another a broken nose. The rest sustained minor injuries.
Datuk Seri Najib Razak was not at his residence during the incident as he was on a working visit to the United States.
City Traffic Investigation and Legal Staff officer DSP Abdullah Roning said the case was being investigated under section 42(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 for driving in a reckless manner.
