Farhash case: Complainant withdraws police report

Perak PKR chairman Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak is being asked to help an investigation into a brawl.

KUALA LUMPUR: A complainant has withdrawn the police report he lodged about a brawl in Ampang on Aug 31, allegedly involving Perak PKR chairman Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak.

Selangor CID chief Fadzil Ahmat said the complainant, who claimed he sustained serious injuries after being beaten up, withdrew the report on Thursday.

The complainant had claimed that he was attacked with helmets, knives and chairs during the fight at the sports complex, which involved more than 12 local men.

Fadzil did not disclose further details of the complainant’s actions and why he did so. “The case will be referred to the Attorney-General’s Chambers for further action,” he said in a statement today.

He said that Farhash, who is the prime suspect in the case, could not be traced. He has been advised by police and PKR president Anwar Ibrahim to help in the investigation.

Fadzil said five men aged between 22 and 38, including the complainant, had been arrested to help in the investigation.

“All of them worked as Muay Thai trainers. Four of the suspects will be released on police bail today while another suspect will be handed over to the Cheras district police headquarters as he is wanted by police in connection with a drug case,” he said.
