KUALA LUMPUR – A car with five off-duty policemen on board crashed into the Malaysian prime minister’s official residence, reports and an official said Sunday.


The five sustained mostly minor injuries in the pre-dawn crash Saturday at Prime Minister Najib Razak’s residence in the sprawling administrative capital of Putrajaya, the New Straits Times daily and Bernama news agency reported.

Traffic police were investigating the incident, they said. The group were traveling in a Proton belonging to one of the five, the Times added.


“Initial investigations reveal that the victims, all in their early 20s, were off-duty and had gone sightseeing,” the paper quoted Kuala Lumpur city chief Mohmad Salleh as saying.

A police official confirmed the incident but could not give further details.

Najib was not at the premises as he was on an official visit to the US.
