GEORGE TOWN – Police have obtained a remand order against a woman who allegedly tried to pass a bag of drugs to her brother at the Penang Court Complex yesterday.
Court Assistant Registrar Ahmad Tajudin Zain granted a four day remand order, which lasts until Sunday, against the 32-year-old after police made the application yesterday.
Police had brought her to be remanded about 10.45am while a man, a woman and a child, who are believed to be her husband and mother, were waiting for her.
They were seen following her to the court room and speaking to her in Tamil.
She cupped her hands over her face to hide her identity after spotting reporters and photographers.
The man told off journalists and demanded them to be respectful and considerate.
The woman landed herself in hot soup after allegedly passing a bag containing heroin and cannabis to her brother at court to be remanded for a drug trafficking case.
She was instead caught red-handed by alert policemen with another female relative during the 10.30am incident.
The relative, in her 30s, was later released. -TheSunDaily
