Cops detain 11 witnesses over risque dance

KUALA LUMPUR: The police have detained 11 more witnesses to facilitate investigations into an incident involving a group of transgenders dancing half-naked.

Selangor police chief Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed said six of them had been remanded with one on bail to undergo surgery, while five other witnesses were guests.

He said the police were tracking down two more suspects believed to be involved in the case.

“Currently, we have detained the organisers and identified the dancers involved.

“In addition, the police have identified the motive behind the event, which was to attract public attention,” he told Bernama after launching the 2022 Selangor Police Chief Hockey Cup Championship final at Bukit Jalil National Hockey Stadium here.

A video of a group of transgenders engaged in a half-naked dance and fireworks display at a unit in I-City on May 27 went viral, which led to a public outcry. – Bernama
