Malaysian actor Kamal Adli was hospitalised after he was attacked during a fan meet at the Singapore Expo on March 12.

The incident happened when the 37-year-old and his wife, fellow actress Uqasha Senrose, made an appearance on the last day of Hari Raya Mega Sale 2023, a three-day fair at Singapore Expo Hall 5A.

Senrose, 30, recounted in a teary Instagram post that the attacker used a weapon she described as a “chota” (stick) and hit Kamal repeatedly on his head, face, chest and back.

Singapore's Berita Harian reported that the actor was rushed to Changi General Hospital and received stitches. The attacker was arrested by the police after members of the public there prevented him from escaping.

Senrose told Berita Harian that the couple were chatting with a wheelchair-bound fan at around 9pm when a man called out to Kamal.

“We thought that he wanted to take a photo. Suddenly, he struck Kamal’s head with a long chota,” she told Berita Harian in Malay.

“”Blood was pouring out... Kamal was badly hurt. I saw Kamal getting up because he wanted to know who attacked him. He was then beaten on the face and cheeks and body.”

She described the attacker as having a “sinister smile” and said that he did not seem to care that the assault happened in public. She thanked those who helped to apprehend him.

She also added that Kamal’s head wound was deep but was thankful that his memory was not affected as he was able to answer after doctors asked him if he knew what date and time it was.

A police spokesman told Berita Harian that a 37-year-old man – who was conscious – had been taken to the hospital, and that a 34-year-old man had been arrested in connection with the case. Investigations are ongoing.

Kamal and Senrose recently acted together in Akira Khan, a Malaysian television romantic drama series.

This is the second time Hari Raya Mega Sale 2023 had made headlines. On March 11, it was reported that 24 food stalls and food trucks were suspended after officers from the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) officers found them operating without licences. – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
