A POPULAR film actress was detained by a religious department team after she was suspected of committing khalwat (being in close proximity) with a man at a condominium in Ukay Perdana, Ampang on Sunday night, reported Harian Metro.
The raid was conducted by the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) around 3.20am following a tip-off.
According to a source, the couple was detained after they failed to produce documents to prove they are married.
“After receiving information from the public, we immediately sent our officers to the location. When we were at the scene, we arrested them for khalwat,” he said.
It is believed that the actress, a 33-year-old widow, has three children and her boyfriend is not an artiste. They are planning to get married soon.
Ampang Jaya OCPD ACP Khairuldin Saad confirmed receiving the report and said the case will be handled by Jais for further investigation.
> The daily also reported that a teenager drowned after rescuing two of his siblings in an incident at Pantai Tanjung Batu, Kiduring, in Bintulu on Saturday afternoon.
“Although he did not know how to swim, he managed to save his two sisters and dragged them to shore, before he was swept away by strong waves,” said the 18-year-old victim’s friend Mohd Shukri Ismail.
A search and rescue team found Mohd Zulkifli Rushi’s body floating about 100m away from the scene at about 12.15am on Sunday.
The incident took place at about 4.30pm, when the victim went swimming with his family.
“I saw his mother and family members shouting for help and calling the victim’s name. At that time, we could see that he was struggling before being hit by strong waves,” said Mohd Shukri.
“In just a few seconds, the victim was no longer to be seen and the public immediately contacted the local authorities,” he added.
Bintulu deputy OCPD Deputy Supt Lim Kwai Seng confirmed receiving the report.
