A man aged 69 was arrested with documents and cards linked to the Kelantan palace. (Bernama pic)KOTA BHARU: Kelantan police have detained a man believed to have been using a false “Datuk” title and another man suspected of posing as a member of the Kelantan royal family.
Kelantan police chief Shafien Mamat said the two suspects were detained after police received a report from the Kelantan palace on Feb 25 regarding an individual falsifying documents and posing as a recipient of an award with the title of Datuk from the Kelantan palace.
He said based on further investigations, the police detained a civil servant, aged 48, in Machang on Feb 27.
“In the raid, the police confiscated a name card with a ‘Datuk’ title and investigations revealed that the suspect got the card from a man claiming to be a Kelantan royal,” he said.
Following that, police conducted another raid in Tanah Merah and detained a man, aged 69, and seized several documents, cards and letters with photos and charts of the Kelantan palace.
“During the raid, the suspect was discovered to be in the midst of approaching people for donations. Also, the police found five Istana Balai Besar member cards, a stamp engraved with the phrase ‘Kerabat Diraja’.
Investigations revealed the suspect was not connected to the palace and was using false information to impersonate royalty,” he said.
“The 69-year-old suspect will be charged while the 48-year-old suspect will be a witness in the case,” he said.
Shafien said the Kelantan palace had never issued any name card to any individual to be conferred the title “Datuk” and only presents awards. - FMT
