SEREMBAN: TV host-entrepreneur Neelofa will have her statement recorded by police on Tuesday (May 4) over an alleged interstate trip to shop at Nilai 3, says deputy Negri Sembilan police chief Asst Comm Datuk Che Zakaria Othman.

Police will also interview the 32-year-old’s husband Muhammad Haris Muhammad Ismail, 26, after pictures and a videoclip of the couple at a carpet shop in Nilai 3 went viral on social media.

“I was told by the Nilai OCPD that they will be called in today.

“We will investigate if they travelled interstate as alleged, ” he told reporters when met at the state contingent office here Tuesday (May 4).

He said the owner and a worker of a carpet shop in Nilai 3 will also be called in to have their statements recorded.
