BELURAN, Nov 30 — The police today denied that the arrest of a man at the Sapi Nangoh road checkpoint (RCP) near here was related to a kidnapping case.

District police chief Supt Kasim Muda said a video recording of the incident that went viral showed a vehicle trying to evade a police inspection.
