He said it was normal for a police officer to know many people.

“In this matter, do not link Khalid to the case,” Zahid said after he opened a workshop on the reformation of Islamic education organised by the Advisory Board on Islamic Education Coordination (Lepai) here.

Zahid, who is also home minister, was asked to comment on Khalid’s admission yesterday that he knew Gopinathan.

This followed a report by news portal Sarawak Report on Monday which claimed that Gopinathan had close links with Khalid and his family.

Khalid had said he would not collude in any illegal activity and would cooperate fully if the allegations of his family’s involvement in unlawful activities were investigated.
