Sabak Bernam police are identifying and searching for the Red Shirt movement’s supporters who allegedly assaulted two Bersih supporters and threw eggs at them.
Sabak Bernam police chief Superintendent Nor Azmi Isa said witnesses of the incident yesterday will be interviewed to help police identify the suspects, local daily New Sunday Times (NST) reported.
The paper said that police had detained three men for profiling but released them yesterday.
According to NST, a video online showed an alleged Red Shirts group throwing eggs at two men wearing Bersih 2.0 shirts.
The two were on motorcycles, with one of them moving away while the other one remained standing and was hit with more eggs after his motorcycle crashed.
The video showed the latter being kicked by an alleged Red Shirts supporter.
The NST also said Tawau police arrested a man over suspected links with a group that had damaged three vehicles from Bersih 2.0’s convoy in Sabah.
The paper said windows on two cars were smashed while the tyres of another car had been punctured.
The two motorcyclists assaulted in Sabak Bernam and Tawau are part of Bersih 2.0’s convoy touring the country ahead of the polls reform group’s Bersih 5 rally on November 19.
