The woman had allegedly lent RM100,000 to the policeman, a Deputy Superintendent, who had allegedly told her that he was going to use the money to buy a promotion to Superintendent.
Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed confirmed receiving a report on the incident.
“The victim, a 36-year-old woman, claimed that she was threatened after she demanded money back.
“Following investigations, we arrested two individuals believed to be involved in the case,” he said in a statement on Tuesday (Oct 12).
