KUCHING - The police today apparently dumped a helpless old man by the roadside instead of taking him to a safe place.
It all began at 7.00 am today, when residents at Desa Moyan, Batu Kawa said that an MPV had taken away an elderly man in his 60s, who was causing a nuisance in the area.
The elderly man, said a resident, was not from around there and they had no knowledge of how he ended up in their housing estate.
They wanted the police to take the man away either to the police station or the Sarawak General hospital.
At 8.30, a group of men who were having a drink by the roadside stall at Jalan Stephen Yong were shocked to see an MPV stopping by the roadside and asking the elderly man to get out.
Several people saw the man refusing to budge and he was instead pushed out.
The MPV then sped off leaving the elderly man lying on the roadside with some injuries on his left forehead.
Baffled by the situation, the group of men went over to find out what had happened but the elderly man was unable to answer them. He said he had no idea where he was.
Angry at how an elderly man was dumped there, someone in the group called Wong King Wei, Special Assistant to DAP MP for Kuching, Chong Chieng Jen.
'Corporal admits to deed'
Wong searched the old man and found a piece of paper with a mobile phone number. Thinking it could be the next of kin, he called and the person answering identified himself to be one corporal Hamdan.
This 'corporal' Hamdan admitted it was he who put the elderly man by the roadside there as the old man had requested to be put there.
Giving the corporal a lecture, Wong said he was disappointed and disgusted with the police's attitude.
He then called for some friends who agreed to send the elderly man to the hospital.
Wong then proceeded to lodge a report at the Simpang Tiga police station and wanted the case to be investigated.
"It is a pure case of irresponsibility on the police's part. How can they dump a helpless man on the roadside. What if some knocked him down? Who will be responsible? At least take him to a safe place before finding out his next of kin," said Wong.
Wong hopes that the police would do a fair investigation and appropriate action would be taken against those responsible.

She was due for surgery but was not fit yet, he said, adding that she had not responded to antibiotics and drugs.
She was also suffering from malnutrition and dehydration, added Dr Ghazali.
District police chief Asst Comm Mohamad Mat Yusop said the case had been reclassified under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder. It was initially investigated under Section 326 for voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons.
ACP Mohamad said a post-mortem would be carried out to determine the cause of death.
Police looking for employer's mum
“We are looking for at least three more people to help us in our investigations,” he added.
It is learnt that police are looking for the male employer’s mother, who also stayed in the same house, the informer who found Mautik, and a former employer of Mautik.
A 29-year-old woman was arrested on the same day Mautik was found and her husband surrendered to the police the following day.
Two officers from the Indonesian Embassy and Selangor executive councillor Dr Xavier Jayakumar were at the hospital to gather more information on the case
Dr Xavier said the Selangor state government expressed its deepest condolences to Mautik’s family and was prepared to help if her family needed help in sending the body home or if family members wanted to come to Malaysia to claim the body

Being the Chairman of the security committee, I went to approach the group and asking them about their activities. One of them informed me (supposely the supervisor) that they were from the MBKS and they were there to throw or dumping the dog carcasses!
I was so surpised because I was not aware about Samajaya Free Industrial Zone Kuching being converted to animal burial ground by MBKS.
Free Industrial Zone is supposed to be a controlled/restricted place. It should not be turned into a dumping or burial ground for animal.
MID and MBKS should discuss about this matter.

PM's Residence In Putra Jaya Cost RM6 Million Or '3 days rental could buy 1 low-cost house Of Taxpyer Monies!
"It's definitely a waste of taxpayers' money. It means we are paying more than RM16,000 a day,"
Liew Chin Tong of DAP told Malaysiakini .
Liew, the Bukit Bendera MP said the prime minister and deputy prime minister do not need such "luxurious" residences at the expense of taxpayers, and that the sum can be channelled for better use.
The government is bound by an agreement with Putrajaya Holdings to pay the sum for 25 years, from the time the first occupant of Seri Perdana - then premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad (left) - moved into the complex in 1999.
According to AFP , Abdullah lives in the complex with his wife, daughter and son-in-law and their children.
"What happens if the prime minister somehow gets evicted?"
Chief minister of opposition-controlled Penang state Lim Guan Eng questioned the payment of rent to Putrajaya Holdings.
According to figures revealed in the House in 2005, the building of Seri Perdana cost RM24.17 million, with maintenance costing up to RM2.9 million a year. An additional RM15.81 million was spent for renovations that year as well. It has also been alleged previously that the building actually cost about RM200 million to build.
In 2006, an opposition MP revealed that a whopping RM20 million was allegedly spent for the security system in the premier's official residence.
RM16 mil spent on renovations
The high cost of building, renovating and maintaining the complex has always been a focal point for the opposition.

Why is it so difficult to locate the owner of the Old Tyre Dumpsite located along Jalan Muara Tuang-Kota Sentosa ?
The site is situated just by the roadside, and has been operated for more than 3 years if I am not mistaken. Until now the local authority still could not locate the owner. Could it because the case involving someone inside Majlis Kota Samarahan or the Politician ?
The tyres caught fire at 3.30pm on 31st May 2009.
The state Fire and Rescue Department received a call from the public at 3.44pm and a fire engine from the Kota Samarahan Fire and Rescue Department with eight firemen was dispatched to the scene to put out the fire. At 5pm, another fire engine from the Siburan Fire and Rescue Department was sent to the scene as backup.
At 5.30pm, the fire was still burning and billowing black smoke could be seen from miles away.
Motorists passing by the fire scene stopped to watch the fire, causing a traffic jam.
Police were called to regulate traffic flow.
