Donning his white turban, Corporal Jagjeet Singh stands out among the police outriders wherever he goes. And he’s tall to boot.

The 56-year old police outrider, now based at Shah Alam and frequently seen in the Sultan of Selangor police outrider team, was one time a cowherd in Menglembu in Ipoh, Perak.

“Those days, after school, its back to the cows. I will look after the cows, cut the grass and do all the related work,” he told Asia Samachar when met at one of his stops while on duty.

Born in 1962, Jagjeet has been with the Malaysian police since he joined in 1981.

Jagjeet’s parents were Ipoh-born Chanan Singh and Punjab-born Malkit Kaur. Now living in Kang, Selangor, Jagjeet’s wife Pal Kaur passed away in 2014. He has a daughter.
