Police officers at Chong Eng’s service centre at Taman Betik Manis in Bukit Mertajam this morning.

BUKIT MERTAJAM: A state executive councillor’s service centre in Bukit Mertajam was defaced with racist profanities by an unknown person earlier this morning.

Central Seberang Perai police chief Nik Ros Azhan Nik Abdul Hamid said Chong Eng’s service centre door at Taman Betik Manis here was sprayed with the words “Cina p*****k” in white paint.

Nik Ros said the exco’s assistant lodged a police report.

He said police are looking at footage from nearby closed-circuit television cameras.

The case is being investigated under Section 427 of the Penal Code for committing mischief and causing damage which carries a three month-jail term or a fine upon conviction.

Chong Eng is the Padang Lalang assemblyman and Women Development, Family, Gender Inclusiveness and non-Muslim Religions committee chief.

She is also the national Wanita DAP leader.

When contacted, Chong Eng said she was not at her service centre and was shocked by the incident.
