Batu MP P Prabakaran said today he has been called in by Sentul police for questioning, with his aide explaining it was for allegedly violating the movement control order (MCO).
On his Facebook page, Prabakaran said he was on his way to the Sentul district police headquarters (IPD) this afternoon.
“Not sure if this is an arrest,” he wrote.
His political secretary reportedly said Prabakaran had gone to assess the situation and get information on residents’ situation at the Sri Murni apartment in Selayang that was earlier today placed under the enhanced movement control order.
“He did not go into the apartment but identified himself at the police base.
“However, they confiscated his handphone and took him to the Sentul district police headquarters,” Muhamed Reza Abdul Ralib was quoted as saying.
According to his aide, Arvind Raj, Prabakaran was detained when he went to check on the surrounding areas of the Selayang wholesale market which fall under his parliamentary constituency, to assess the welfare of the people there.
