KUALA LUMPUR: Closed-circuit television cameras (CCTVs) installed at Sri Pentas, TV3's headquarters in Damansara Utama, have captured visuals showing Datuk Sharifah Aini's car stopping just before the alleged assault on the veteran singer. 

However, the recording broadcast over the private television station's 8pm news yesterday did not capture the said attackers near her car. 

CID director Commissioner Datuk Musa Hassan said he had directed his officers to obtain the tape from TV3 for investigation purposes. 

“The tape will certainly shed some light into the alleged incident,” he said. 

Comm Musa said he had also asked for a thorough medical check-up to be conducted on the singer who claimed she was injected on her neck during the Thursday night assault. 

A complete blood test had to be done on her as police had to know what was actually injected, he added.  

“We will record Sharifah Aini’s statement when she is well enough to answer our questions regarding the assault,” he said. 

He also urged the media and the public to allow the police to conduct their investigations and not to speculate or create rumours about the incident.  

The singer was warded at the Damansara Specialist Hospital here after she claimed that two men on a motorcycle attacked her while she was on her way to visit a relative at 8.30pm. 

The singer claimed that the men pulled her from her car, slapped her face and punched her stomach before injecting her. 

Selangor deputy CID chief Asst Comm Hasanudin Hasan had said that it was a “simple assault” case and initial investigations showed that no weapon was used in the attack.
