Zakir, who was accompanied by his lawyer Akhberdin Abdul Kader, had his statement recorded over comments he made during a ceramah earlier this month.

Akhberdin told Malaysiakini Zakir only left the police headquarters at around 1.30am on Tuesday.

The Indian national had entered the police headquarters at 3pm on Monday.
