Cops to probe video of Zamani being made to sing in handcuffs

PETALING JAYA - The police will launch a probe into a video being circulated of a vocalist from a popular '90s band singing while in handcuffs.

"The police will investigate and take action against the individual responsible for recording and uploading the video of Zamani singing while handcuffed," said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar in a tweet on Thursday.

The video, which is believed to have been recorded soon after Zamani was arrested showed the former lead singer of '90s band Slam singing Gerimis Mengundang, one of the band's hit songs, while handcuffed.

The video has gone viral on the social media and has spurred calls for police to investigate the matter.

Zamani, or his real name Zamani Ibrahim, 43, was arrested on Wednesday morning for alleged involvement in drug abuse at his house in Taman Keramat, Ampang.

He was arrested with a 32-year-old woman for allegedly possessing a plastic containing what is believed to be 1.2g of heroin.
