PETALING JAYA: The Fire and Rescue Department has come out against social media users who are spreading rumours that the fireman critically injured at the Sri Maha Mariamman temple in Subang Jaya has died.

In a statement on its official Facebook page on Tuesday (Nov 27), Bomba said it hoped that no one would spread false information about Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim, who is on life support.

“The officer is still being treated at the Subang Jaya Medical Centre,” it said in its Facebook post, accompanied by a post of the false information.

Muhammad Adib was brought in early Tuesday (Nov 27) and admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU).

The 24-year-old suffered a broken rib and internal injuries after rioters forcefully pulled him out of the emergency medical response vehicle he was in.

His family and his fiancée are at the hospital to get updates on his condition.

Muhammad Adib is due to be married next month.

Firemen were sent to the Sri Maha Mariamman temple to extinguish a burning car that had been torched by angry protestors.

The pandemonium at the temple began early Monday (Nov 26) morning, following a scuffle between two groups over the relocation of the temple from USJ25 to USJ23.

Police have arrested 21 men so far.
