In November 2021, a police officer allegedly beat up a woman for failing to find him a match on a matrimony website.
After waiting for six months, the suspect lost his temper and hit the 34-year-old woman in an elevator in Cheras on 16 November 2021.
The woman suffered head injuries and was treated at a hospital.
According to Malaysiakini, Selangor police chief Arjunaidi Mohamed said the 35-year-old suspect was a corporal detective in Selangor and not a senior officer.
Based on a tweet by Edisi Khas, it’s believed the suspect’s name is Insp Jayaganesh.

Chillingly, the woman’s husband was murdered recently and rumours abound that it’s connected to the previous assault.
The woman’s husband made a police report against Insp Jayaganesh at IPD Cheras on 25 December 2021. His body was found on 30 December 2021.
It’s said that he had been threatened several times to withdraw his police report.
According to Edisi Khas’ tweet, Insp Jayaganesh is a member of a gang known as 360 Devan and is involved in drug trafficking activities.
Statement from the police
The police have released a statement to refute allegations that a police officer murdered the victim.
The police have received a report about the incident at the condominium from the public. Early investigations revealed that there are no criminal elements in the case.
The victim lived alone and had not been living together with his wife since 7 December 2021 due to marital issues.
Netizens voice their thoughts
Netizens expressed disappointment at the level of corruption in the police force.
Tak guna betul la, plz pdrm jalankan undang2 dengan betul asal makin teruk sangat ni— danial🇲🇾🇵🇸 (@danialaiman____) December 31, 2021
A few of them expressed surprise that some police officers joined gangs. This chain of events also caused some netizens to feel afraid.
Takut pulak aku dgn negara ni 😅. Dah sampai sanggup membunuh untuk tutup mulut. Apa nk jadi dgn pdrm— Sukuna (@nabale96) January 1, 2022
A netizen added that she’s afraid because there’s a case involving a senior officer and she lives alone.
Kejam!! Saya pun takut. Ada kes ancaman yg melibatkan keluarga Pegawai Kanan PDRM. Saya tinggal seorang.— Premlatha BK Nair (@PremlathaN) December 31, 2021
Among all the negative responses, a person said it’s sad that the image of the police force is tarnished due to one bad apple.
Despite this, they still express their support for the entire police force.
Sebab nila setitik, susu sebelanga rosak….saya still salute majority of our PDRM officers that are effective in performing their duties. Thank you Tuan.— NN (@NolyNoah) January 1, 2022
There are those who tried to rationalise what transpired too by comparing it to the Hong Kong film Infernal Affairs.
They suspect there’s an undercover cop in the gang 360 Devan.
Infernal Affairs is a series of three action films about a police officer who infiltrates the triads in Hong Kong and another police officer who’s secretly working for the same gang.
Aku syak dalam geng 360 Devan ni mesti ada polis tapi menyamar jadi geng 360. Dia serupa filem HK Infernal Affairs tapi versi Tamil.— יִצְחָק (@EJattIsHere) January 1, 2022
Hopefully, something can be quickly done about this to protect other innocent lives.
