The perpetrators tied a warning note to the feet of the chicken, which had its throat slit.
The note warned the Johor Baru MP “not to play”, with b*****d and sotong (squid to mean stupid) written on it.
Akmal said he was informed by a staff member about the matter at about 7.20am yesterday.
“A police report has been lodged and I will leave it to the police to investigate,” he said in a statement yesterday.
Johor Baru South OCPD Asst Comm Shahurinain Jais said police had taken the carcass and note left outside the office at Jalan Idaman 3.
“There was some red paint splashed on the office door, grille and wall on the front door,” he said.
He said there was no CCTV at the premises.
ACP Shahurinain added that police believed that a political grudge against the victim could be the reason behind the threats, adding that the case was being investigated under Section 427 of the Penal Code and Section 506 of the same Act.
He urged anyone with information to contact the state police hotline at 07-221 2999 or lodge a report at the nearest police station.
