The Malaysian Crime Watch Taskforce (MyWatch) chairperson R Sri Sanjeevan has claimed that he was beaten while being remanded under the Prevention of Crime Act 1959 (Poca).

Meanwhile, the Kuala Lumpur police chief Amar Singh told Malaysiakini today that the police are not aware of the allegations, but would investigate if Sanjeevan lodges a police report.

According to Sanjeevan’s lead counsel Gobind Singh Deo, Sanjeevan was slapped with two charges in separate courts in Seremban earlier today, where the allegations of torture were raised during proceedings.
