Local drama Gerak Khas actor Asst Comm Shahron Anuar Abdul Latif, is still alive and kicking contrary to a viral post claiming that he had died in Mecca.
Shahron Anuar, who is the Perak police contingent management department chief, said he had received endless calls and messages from friends and family since Thursday after news of his alleged death went viral.
“I thought it was strange because when I answered the calls, they were thankful and told me about the viral news,” said the actor.
He believed that it was a case of mistaken identity due to similarity on their names and occupation.
The deceased was former Johor CID chief, Supt Shahrul Anwar.
The viral post had provided inaccurate information stating that the deceased was an actor of drama Gerak Khas and had attached a photo of Shahron Anuar.
> Form 4 student bullied and shame over quarrel in WeChat
A Form Four student has accused her senior of hitting and groping her in the school toilet after the duo reportedly argued in WeChat earlier.
The bullying incident, which happened in a secondary school at Selising in Pasir Puteh, Kelantan, was purportedly recorded and shared among a group of students.
Nur Elisa Aikal Mohd Zulazamani, 16, has claimed that the Form Five senior had told her to enter the toilet before she started to hit her in front of other students.
“At first, there were only two seniors in the toilet excluding the suspect. Then another eight students were called in to witness and shame my niece,” said the victim’s aunty Shamsilawati Che Daud.
“The suspect groped and even tried to open her skirt, but Nur Elisa managed to ward her off. One of the students recorded the act,” added Shamsilawati.
The victim was left with bruises over her body and fainted before she was sent to a clinic in Selinsing.
A police report has been lodged but the authority has refused to comment on the case.
District police chief Dept Supt Abdul Rozak Mohammad said both involved parties will be settling the case at school.
