Police nab man who issued death threats to woman for supporting Ain Husniza

PUTRAJAYA: Police have confirmed the arrest of a suspect who issued death threats to a woman who had supported Ain Husniza Saiful Nizam online.

When contacted on Wednesday (June 23), Putrajaya OCPD Asst Comm Asmadi Abdul Aziz said Ain Husniza had also presented herself to the police to give a statement on the matter.

“The suspect has been arrested and granted bail. We have also seized his handphone and sent it for forensic analysis.

“The suspect has just finished his studies in the United Kingdom and the investigation is still under way,” he said.

He added that the issue started after the suspect replied to a comment from the complainant regarding Ain Husniza’s case.

“Ain Husniza’s statement was taken only to facilitate investigations into the threats issued to the complainant,” he said.

Ain Husniza, 17, made headlines earlier this year for calling out her teacher's rape jokes in class.
