Umno Youth had planned to demonstrate outside Karpal’s house at 3pm over the DAP leader’s intention to file a lawsuit against Perak ruler Sultan Azlan Shah.

However, Mohd Khir and the protesters aborted their plan about 10 minutes before the protest was scheduled to start when the police warned them of stern action.

The police, including members of the Federal Reserve Unit (FRU), appeared to outnumber the protesters. Police then recorded statements from the Umno supreme council member Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo and three Umno Youth leaders for taking part in an illegal gathering.
