IPOH: The investigation papers (IP) on the alleged rape case involving a Perak state executive council member have been returned to the police for the second time for more details.

“It was returned for the police to furnish more evidence on the case,” Perak police chief Razarudin Hussain told reporters here today.

He expected the IP to be sent back to the state prosecution director in two days.

On July 8, a 23-year-old Indonesian maid lodged a police report, claiming that she was raped by state exco member Paul Yong Choo Kiong.

Earlier, Razarudin witnessed the handing-over of duties by Ipoh police chief Mohd Ali Tamby to his deputy, Mohd Nordin Abdullah. Ali has been promoted as Eastern Sabah Security Command (ESSCom) special team chief of staff.

In another development, Razarudin said the police had recorded statements from the drivers of two cars who were robbed of RM1 million worth of jewellery belonging to their employers last Monday.

Four men, masked and armed with machetes, robbed the two men of the jewellery they were transporting after ramming a lorry into one of their vehicles at Jalan Chin Hwa, Taman Chateau here.

Police have identified the registration number of the car used by the suspect from a CCTV footage at the scene, he added.
