THE husband of online entrepreneur Siti Suriani Wahiddin – also known as Siti Jamumall – has lodged a police report over their newborn baby boy being switched after his birth, reported Berita Harian.

Shah Alam OCPD Asst Comm Baharudin Mat Taib said Mohammad Syafiq Irfan Azman, 23, lodged a report on Sunday upon realising that the baby was not his after taking the child home from a private hospital in Shah Alam.

“Based on the report, the man claimed that he only realised the baby was not his when he noticed that the name tag on the baby’s leg was not that of his wife as he was cutting it off, ” said ACP Baharudin.

Police, he added, would investigate whether any offence had been committed.

Siti Suriani, 23, who also shared the incident on Facebook Live, expressed her shock and questioned how such a mistake could have happened.

“If my husband had not paid attention to the name tag, I wonder how long we would have assumed that the baby is ours, ” she said.

Her husband immediately notified the hospital upon discovering the mistake.

Siti Suriani delivered the baby, who is the couple’s second child, in the early hours of Friday.

> Kosmo! reported that a man in Kampung Padang Besar in Alor Gajah, Melaka, was shocked to find that a large python had eaten 13 of his chickens.

Safri Abdul Rahman, 63, found the snake when he went to check on his chickens at about 10am on Sunday and called the Alor Gajah Civil Defence Force.

The former Armed Forces member, who began rearing chickens about two months ago, had come across half-eaten carcasses of his birds last week.

He initially thought that they were being attacked by a civet but was shocked to discover it was a python.

“When I entered the chicken coop, I saw a coiled-up python which I believed was resting after a full meal, and two more of my birds had gone missing, ” he said.

Alor Gajah Civil Defence Force officer Mohd Ridhwan Latip said it took about five minutes to capture the snake.

He added that the snake, weighing about 20kg and measuring 12m long, might have slithered in from a nearby jungle or river.

The reptile was released back into the wild away from any housing area.
