Four cops detained to assist probe into escape of detainee

Four cops have been remanded to assist in investigations after a 39 year-old suspect who escaped from police custody while being taken to the Simpang Renggam detention centre.

The four aged between 24 and 50 years were all attached with the Nilai district police station here.

State CID chief ACP Hamdan Majid said on Tuesday, police have also detained three others, including two women to assist in the probe.

All three had also tested positive for drugs.

On Sunday, the suspect Kisminderjit Singh Bahadur Singh duped two policemen into believing he had to go to the toilet and escaped in a getaway car that had rammed into the police van carrying him.

The police van had stopped at the Setul rest area along the Kajang-Seremban expressway, after the suspect claimed he had a stomachache and pestered the policemen to allow him to use a toilet there.

The policemen allegedly relented after the suspect said he was losing control of his bowels.
