He said the force understands the public is concerned that the officer drove his motorbike through the crowd of protesters.


“We understand that this is a serious matter, we accord high priority to this case.


“The officer has been suspended from all frontline duties instantly and has taken leave instantly.”


Mr Tse said New Territories South Region is investigating the case.


“If any misconduct arises, Police will certainly follow up,” he added.
