PETALING JAYA: Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar (pic) has ordered the arrest of a Twitter user who linked multiple high-profile deaths to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

In a tweet on Thursday, Khalid ordered the Police Cyber Investigation Response Centre to track and arrest the social media user for sedition, with a screen-capture of the offending post added below the message.

Faisal Rohban, who allegedly posted the message on Twitter, connected four deaths, including that of the late Deputy Public Prosecutor Anthony Kevin Morais, to the prime minister and his wife.

“Those two don’t have any other work to do?” posted Faisal.

He added that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s sodomy case might also be linked.
