“We are still waiting for further instructions from the AGC. We have already referred the investigation papers to them,” he told reporters at the police academy in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur today.

Police began investigating Zakir after receiving 515 police reports against him over speeches during a ceramah in Kota Baru in August.
