ALOR SETAR: The police have confirmed that a police inspector who was found half-naked in a women’s toilet at a shopping complex near here on Tuesday has mental problems.
Kedah police chief, Asri Yusoff said the 32-year-old policeman was sent to the hospital daily for treatment since several months ago, other than being confirmed to have been hallucinating when the incident occurred.
“The policeman also has a poor service record such as often going missing from office, not carrying out the duties entrusted to him and other disciplinary offences,” he told a media conference at the Kedah police contingent headquarters in Alor Setar yesterday.
A video of the incident at the toilet recorded by a woman went viral on the social media showing the policeman clad only in his underwear and in a state of hallucination.
The woman claimed she was defaecating when the policeman entered the toilet.
Asri said the policeman was attached to the state contingent headquarters operations room. Bernama
