Federal Narcotics CID director Commissioner Datuk Mohd Khalil Kader Mohd said police are waiting for the results of the screening test before taking further action.
“In all drug cases, we conduct the first screening and if it is positive, we cannot conclude a person is an addict (drug). So, we need to send these samples to be verified by a hospital,” he said in a press conference here today.
Mohd Khalil said this when asked to comment on the status of the case involving a Selangor assemblyman and four special officers of politicians who were among 17 people arrested during an operation in Puchong on Sunday.
The results of the first urine test found 16 of them tested positive for drugs.
Yesterday, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador confirmed that 17 people were detained in the raid.
