Law enforcements help prevent crimes from going rampant, but, what happens if the crimes are carried out by the cops themselves?
Two police officers have been remanded for seven days (6th to 12th December) for allegedly forcing oral sex, molesting and coercing an engaged couple to have intercourse while being recorded.
The incident took place on December 4th (Friday) at Pengkalan Chepa, Kelantan, involving a 35-year-old lance corporal and a 30-year-old constable. At around 10:45pm, the two policemen were on patrol duty before they came across a couple, who were in their 20s, in a car by the roadside.
“The policemen are said to have punched one of the victims and extorted RM1,250 from them. After obtaining the money which was withdrawn from an ATM nearby, the policemen allegedly asked the couple to have sex in the victim’s car, while the activity was recorded using the policeman’s mobile phone,” said Kelantan police chief Deputy Comm Shafien Mamat.
According to Shafien, the woman victim also claimed that she was forced to perform oral sex while being molested by one of the policemen; all while her fiancé was withdrawing money at the ATM. He added, “We have detained both the policemen and they have been remanded for a week for the police to conduct further investigation.”
The remand order was made after the woman’s fiancé lodged a police report at the local police station on 6th December (Sunday). Shafie went on to say, “Based on the police report lodged by the victim, we will take into account the victim’s allegations and carry out a thorough investigation. If the allegations are true, we will take appropriate action.”
The case is currently being investigated under Section 377C, 354 and 384 of the Penal Code, while the young couple have been sent to the hospital for a medical checkup.

This is very disturbing due to the fact that the crime was allegedly carried out by the ones who are supposed to prevent it.
