KUALA LUMPUR – The police had taken statements from 18 witnesses at a Hindu temple to assist into investigation of a wedding ceremony held at Taman Serdang Raya last Sunday.
The ceremony held from 8.00am until 10.30am was attended by dozens of guests, thus, breaching the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO).
The Chief of Selangor Criminal Investigation Department, Datuk Fadzil Ahmat said, the police had also taken the statements from 15 witnesses from both sides of the couple who attended the ceremony.
“On the Serdang Hindu Temple case, we started the investigation based on two police reports where 18 witnesses (from the temple) and 15 witnesses of the bride and groom who attended the ceremony had recorded their statements,” he said during a news conference at Kuala Selangor today.
He added, the case will be investigated further to complete the investigation paper.
“After completing the investigation papers, we will refer to the Deputy Public Prosecutor for further action,” he said.
Yesterday, the management of the temple had finally confessed to organising the wedding ceremony on Sunday after denying it the day before.
According to the Serdang District Police Chief, ACP Ismadi Borhan, the management of the temple also confessed that the ceremony was attended by 20 to 30 guests.
Meanwhile, Fadzil said that the police had started the investigation right after receiving information on the incident.
“I am not sure about the time or duration the police went to the scene (house of worship) but it is our SOP to conduct immediate investigation after receiving an information,” he said. –MalaysiaGazette
