Three undergraduates voicing their rights arrested in KL Sentral

KUALA LUMPUR: Police arrested three journalists, a photographer and three undergraduates for alleged participation in an illegal assembly at the city’s transportation hub, KL Sentral in Brickfields, here, today.

It is understood that the journalists are from Keadilan Daily and the photographer from TV Selangor who were there to attend a news conference on the  “Undergraduates Safe the People Expedition”.

Brickfields police chief ACP Wan Bari Wan Abdul Khalid said the seven were arrested after they ignored the order from the auxiliary police at KL Sentral  to disperse in the 10.30am incident.

He said the gathering was organised by the Malaysia Undergraduates Solidarity and participated by nearly 40 students from public higher learning institutions in the Klang Valley.

“Police arrested them because they held a gathering without a permit at the station and it could tarnish the image of KL Sentral, a place with a high concentration of tourists,” he said when contacted.

Wan Bari said those arrested were taken to the Jalan Travers police station for their statements to be taken and for investigation under Section 27 (5) of the Police Act.
