PETALING JAYA: The Selangor State Religious Department (Jais) is being accused of wrongfully nabbing four people for khalwat (close proximity) last month.
The incident, which involved Hanisha Abdul Rahman, 29, and Muhammad Mukamil Nordin, 22, occurred at midnight on June 22, outside the former’s house in Salak Tinggi.
Also caught for close proximity were two students living in the same house, aged 19 and 21.
Hanisha, who works at a shop in KLIA2, claims to have known Muhd Mukamil from work, as he is an airport limousine driver and sends her to and from work.
“He is our driver,” Hanisha told reporters at a press conference here on Friday, adding that Jais had claimed in their report that the four were caught in the house although Muhd Mukamil had been outside the place after dropping Hanisha off.
“My dignity and good name have been called into question,” she said.
Lawyer Latheefa Koya of Lawyers for Liberty, who is representing the four, said that a police report had been filed against the Jais officers involved in the arrest.
