The officer then reportedly fired a shot which hit Mohamad Alif’s hand.
Commenting on this, Bukit Gelugor MP Ramkarpal Singh said the police should probe if the officer followed standard operating procedures when discharging his firearm.
“If investigations reveal that the life of the officer was not in danger, since the motorcycle was speeding away from him, there should not be any justifiable reason for him to open fire,” he said.

NAJIB TRIAL | Former SRC International Sdn Bhd director Suboh Md Yasin told the Kuala Lumpur High Court that he fled Malaysia in 2015 because he was afraid of the then prime minister Najib Abdul Razak.
“I was afraid because of the situation at the time and also because Najib was the prime minister.
“I didn’t know what could happen to me and my family. I made the decision to flee to Bangkok with my wife. We were there for about a month,” he said, reading from his witness statement.
Prior to fleeing, Suboh said he contacted the MACC in 2015 and offered information regarding SRC which was being investigated at the time.
When he attempted to go to the MACC office, Suboh (below) said an anonymous caller, who claimed to be from MACC, dissuaded him and urge him to leave Malaysia instead.
In July, 2015, Najib had axed then deputy premier Muhyiddin Yassin, cabinet minister Mohd Shafie Apdal, attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail and others.
This followed allegations that RM2.6 billion had flowed into Najib’s personal bank accounts.
While in Bangkok, Suboh said he met a Thai national who provided him and his wife flight tickets to Abu Dhabi, UAE.
He said he was brought to the Rosewood Hotel where he stayed for a week. The cost of flight and lodging was sponsored by unknown persons.
Suboh said he then hid in Bangkok until coming back to Malaysia after the last general election.
“I decided to stop running and remained in Malaysia to help investigators,” he added.

Anwar said PKR’s Sungai Petani Member of Parliament Datuk Johari Abdul had lodged a police report against the author who claimed to have written a manuscript titled Mengapa Anwar Tak Boleh Jadi PM (Why Anwar Cannot Be Prime Minister).
“A police report has been made against this writer who has been paid. Investigation and necessary action should be taken against him,” he said after attending a Hari Raya do with the Malaysian-Indian Business Council.
Earlier, Johari told reporters that he had lodged a police report at the Petaling Jaya district police headquarters over the matter.
Johari said the author had contacted him and asked to meet Anwar, saying he was offered RM400,000 for the book that he had written.
“He said if Datuk Seri (Anwar) was willing to give him more than RM400,000, he was ready to hand over the manuscript to him,” said Johari.
The 16-chapter manuscript, he added, contained allegations of homosexuality, corruption, as well as claims that Anwar was a Zionist agent and a kowtow to the United States.
Johari also said the book had questioned the royal pardon granted by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to Anwar for the latter’s sodomy conviction.
UPDATED | Johari Abdul, who exposed a manuscript for a book which describes Anwar Ibrahim as unfit to be the prime minister, claims the author is now negotiating for a higher price than what he was offered for the book.
According to the Sungai Petani MP, the author had contacted him, saying he wanted to meet with the PKR president.
“He informed me that he has completed the book and someone has offered him RM400,000 for it.
“If Anwar ups the price, he is willing to give the book to Anwar. Otherwise, he will give it to the person willing to publish the book,” he added.
Johari was speaking to reporters after the PKR political bureau meeting at the party headquarters in Petaling Jaya this evening.
As PKR faces a potential fallout due to a sex scandal, a lawmaker has now exposed a manuscript for a book which details reasons why its president Anwar Ibrahim should not become the prime minister.
Johari Abdul also pointed to Chapter 15 of the book, “Mengapa Anwar tak boleh jadi PM(Why Anwar cannot be PM)”, which he said promoted another leader whom the author felt was more qualified for the post.
Although he did not mention the name of the leader, the title for Chapter 15 reads “Azmin Ali Bakal PM (Azmin Ali next prime minister).”
