Bukit Jalil residents say police and City Hall workers vandalised their property despite a court injunction not to do so.PETALING JAYA: Yet more police reports. This time against several policemen and City Hall officers. The Bukit Jalil estate action committee and individuals have now filed seven reports over a breach of a court injunction.
The 41 families residing at the estate obtained an ex-parte interim injunction from the Court of Appeal on May 13 to stop Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) from demolishing their homes.
In its report at the Dang Wangi police headquarters yesterday, the committee claimed the DBKL officers and the police personnel had been in contempt of court as DBKL had been slapped with the injunction from entering the site.
On May 25, some 30 policemen and DBKL officers, led by an inspector known as Chandraratna had entered the estate, tore down their banners and broke several chairs in a guard post.
When the residents queried them, the officers allegedly intimidated and rained insults at them.
Despite being shown a copy of the injunction, Chandraratna had refused to acknowledge it.
The estate action committee treasurer K Balakrishnan called upon the police to suspend Chandraratna from service pending an investigation.
“If the police fails to take action against their men , then we will have no choice but to send a memorandum to Bukit Aman police headquarters,” said Balakrishnan who is also Hindraf Makkal Sakthi national coordinator.
