PETALING JAYA: TV host and entrepreneur Neelofa (pic) could find herself in hot water again after a photo allegedly showing several members of her family visiting her home during Hari Raya went viral on social media.

It is believed that she will be called in for questioning soon.

Without naming anyone, Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Anuar Omar said that investigations have been opened over a 26-second video showing a Hari Raya celebration involving a celebrity and her family members.

"The video was uploaded on Instagram by the celebrity's sister. It showed family members congregating at a house during the first of Syawal (first day of Hari Raya)," he said in a statement on Tuesday (May 18).

He added that a report was lodged on May 17 over the video, which was shot at a house in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur.

The celebrity, who is no stranger to controversy, sparked the ire of social media users following a post by her sister, which has since been deleted.

In the now deleted clip, family members were seen greeting each other in a house, believed to be Neelofa's house in Ampang.

Screenshots of the video showed herself, and her husband greeting several others.

Earlier this month, Neelofa and her husband Muhammad Haris Mohd Ismail were called up by police to record their statements for allegedly crossing state lines to buy carpets in Negri Sembilan.

Previously, both of them and their family members were issued with compounds amounting to RM60,000 for violating Covid-19 SOP after the couple's wedding event on March 27 revealed that guests were seated closely to one another without adhering to the physical distancing rule. Some were also seen without face masks.

The newlyweds were again criticised when they were accused of breaching movement restrictions for travelling to Langkawi while Kuala Lumpur and Selangor were under conditional movement control order.
