Acid splasher is talk of the town, police not amused

The police have warned the public not to spread rumours on the reported spate of acid attacks in the Klang Valley.

Kuala Lumpur police chief and Bukit Aman director of Logistics, Zulkifli Abdullah, said police would take stern action against those who cause fear among the public.

“I am urging those spreading rumours about the acid splashing incidents to stop the irresponsible act or face action,” he said after a Kuala Lumpur police dinner with orphans at the Police Training Centre, here, last night.

He said those spreading false information could be investigated underSection 505 of the Penal Code.

Investigations into death of Ahmad Sarbani held up by Attorney-General

On the death of Selangor Customs assistant director Ahmad Sarbani Mohamed at the Kuala Lumpur branch office of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission here on April 6, Zulkifli said police were still awaiting a decision from the Attorney-General for further action.

“As for us (police), we are satisfied with the investigation which we hope can shed some light on the incident,” he said.

Earlier, 260 orphans from six orphanages and orphaned children of police personnel were entertained at the dinner function.
