A police officer who was caught on video watching a bloody brawl unfold in Jalan Telawi 2, Bangsar on the wee hours of Saturday, was off-duty and was not carrying any firearms during the incident.
According to Brickfields police chief ACP Anuar Omar, the 27-year-old inspector from Kuala Selangor police's Criminal Investigations Department (CID), had admitted to being at the scene when interviewed.
"The officer said he had gone from his house in Subang Jaya to Bangsar to have dinner with his friend. He was walking with his friend to their car parked nearby, when the incident happened.
"Police patrol cars had already arrived at the scene after a member of the public called the police, as he was about to call in the incident," Bernama quoted Anuar as saying in a statement.
The brawl, which resulted in the death of 28-year-old Sanjeet Kumar Morthi from Batu Caves, and the serious injury of his friend, was partially recorded by the police officer's friend.
Following the circulation of the video, media outlets reported that a bystander spotted in it was a police officer. In it, the inspector was reportedly seen smiling and saying "Eh, I don't know what is going on also lah" when called out by his friend.
In the incident about 1am on Saturday, Sanjeet was slashed and stabbed to death with knives and broken beer bottles after being set upon by a group of rivals looking to settle an old score. His friend also suffered serious injuries in the attack.
Police have arrested a 26-year-old local man to facilitate investigations and are tracking down several others who are still at large.
