KUANTAN: The Temerloh CID chief was charged in the Sessions Court here with accepting a RM2,000 bribe from a massage parlour operator.
Deputy Supt R. Sundralingam, 52, of Taman KSM pleaded not guilty.
He is alleged to have committed the offence in a restaurant in Jalan Temerloh, Mentakab, at about 5.25pm on March 23.
DSP Sundralingam is said to have accepted RM2,000 from Yow Yock Tai as an inducement not to take action against him and five workers for operating an illegal massage parlour.
He was charged under Section 17 (a) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009, punishable under Section 24 of the same Act.
The offence carries a jail term of up to 20 years and a fine of up to five times the amount of bribes involved or RM10,000, whichever is higher.
Sessions judge Fathiyah Idris yesterday granted the accused bail of RM4,000 in one surety and fixed trial for five days from Oct 1.
