Estimate Reading Time: 2 minutes

KUALA LUMPUR: The female inspector who was accused of three charges, including insulting the modesty of a police officer, wants to file a preliminary objection against the charges.


Lawyer M. Manoharan, who is representing Insp Sheila Sharon Steven Kumar, informed the Selayang Magistrate’s Court when the matter was brought up for mention before Magistrate Chai Guan Hock here on Monday (Aug 7).

He said the defence, 35, would file the preliminary objection as the charges involved constitutional issues apart from being baseless and frivolous.

Earlier, Deputy Public Prosecutor Anis Farhah Ahmad Hilmi informed the court that the prosecution had handed over parts of the documents relating to the case to the defence with the exception of the video recordings of the incidents.

Insp Sheila was accused of intimidating M. Silverkoomarie, 69, at a shoplot in Jalan SG 1/1, Taman Sri Gombak near here at noon on June 15.

The charge under Section 506 of the Penal Code carries a maximum two-year imprisonment, or fine or both, if convicted.

Insp Sheila was also charged with insulting the modesty of one P. Taneswaran, 31, by calling him “fat, bald and looking like a rhinoceros” an hour later at the same location on the same day.


The charge under Section 509 of the Code carries a maximum five-year imprisonment, or fine or both, if convicted.

Meanwhile, at a separate Magistrate’s Court, Deputy Public Prosecutor Erneetha Kaur Beghwant Singh informed Magistrate Nur Hafizah Rajuni that the prosecution has handed over parts of the documents in the case to the defence.

At this court, Insp Sheila faced a charge where she allegedly insulted the modesty of L/Kpl Abdul Arif Farhan Abdul Razak by uttering inappropriate words about the lance corporal rank at 1.25pm at the same place and date.

For this offence, she was also charged under Section 509 of the Penal Code.

Both courts have fixed Aug 22 for mention.
