The police will conduct an inquiry into the allegation that one of the accused juveniles in the murder of Cradle Fund CEO Nazrin Hassan was assaulted while in detention.
Inspector-general of police Mohamad Fuzi Harun said today police will carry out further investigations, adding that such things should not happen.
"If there is such a claim we will investigate.
"As the case was reported to have happened at a detention centre in Kuala Lumpur, I will instruct a Kuala Lumpur police officer to look into the matter " he told reporters at the Seberang Perai Selatan police headquarters.
Fuzi was commenting on an allegation by lawyer Hisyam Teh that his 16-year-old client was physically and sexually assaulted while at the Sentosa Probation Hostel in Sentul.
Hisyam filed the complaint during the proceedings in the Shah Alam High Court today, where his client, along with Nazrin’s widow, Samirah Muzaffar and another 13-year-old boy, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
