Bangladeshi jailed for offering police bribe in Malaysia

A Bangladeshi national in Malaysia has been fined 10,000 ringgit (Tk 2 lakh BDT) and sentenced to three-month imprisonment for offering police bribe to release himself.

A court of Emergency Protection Order (EPO) in  Kuala Lumpur on Friday fined Md Ariful, 41, the amount and gave him the jail term.

According to the EPO court sources, police in a raid detained him alongwith 13 cartoons of illegal cigarettes from Jalan Stesen area in Kampung Manggis around 9:00pm (local time) on September 6.

However, he tried to give police 50 ringgit as bribe to release himself.
