KUALA LUMPUR: Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar has ordered police to investigate Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua over his tweet on Aminulrasyid Amzah case.

He said Pua is twisting the facts and confusing the public with his tweet.

"Call this person in for questioning," Khalid tweeted.


Khalid had before this refused to apologise to the family of teenager Aminulrasyid Amzah, who was shot dead by police six years ago, maintaining that his statement was made based on facts.

“I have never said the victim used the parang, I only said it was found in the car, so do not try to twist my words," he said.

He also vowed to take action against those who twisted his words.

Pua had tweeted this yesterday:


On Thursday, the family of Aminulrasyid Amzah was awarded RM414,800 in damages for the boy's death.
