Two high achiever Sikhs have been recognised with honorary membership of the Kuala Lumpur-based Kelab Aman.
Malaysian top cop Commissioner Amar Singh and rally ace Karamjit Singh were presented the membership at an event this evening.
Since October, Amar Singh became the Malaysian federal police commercial crime investigation director, making him the first Indian to break into the top leadership ranks of the Malaysian federal police.
The third-generation cop was earlier the chief police officer (CPO) of Kuala Lumpur.
“He is a pride amongst the Sikhs,” said Kelab Aman deputy president Baljeet Singh Sidhu.
Karamjit, popularly known as the Flying Sikh, is Malaysia’s most decorated rally driver, having won a host of international and national championships.
“His list of achievements is just too long to be mentioned,” said Baljit at the gathering that also welcomed new members.
Last year, he emerged champion for the 16th time at the Malaysian Rally Championshiop, a victory that alluded him this year due to problems with the car. He is also the 2002 FIA Production Car World Champion.
At the same event, Kelab Aman former president Patminderjit Singh also officiated the opening of the club’s Green Terrace, a newly renovated section with an open view to its fields.
