MELAKA: Melaka police have been unable to trace the source of a mysterious loud knocking on house doors at four villages in Klebang here.

Melaka Tengah OCPD Asst Comm Christopher Patit said his men were sent to the villages after being alerted to the unexplained occurrence but found nothing out of the ordinary.

“The villages were calm and there was no knocking as claimed,” he said when contacted on Monday (Jan 31).

Earlier, The Star stringer Sardi Mahorm was shown an image of an alien-like figure after he went to the villages to look into the mystery.

Villagers told him that the figure vanished when they tried to get close to it.

Villager Abdul Rustam Hameed, 52, claimed that 25 households at Tanjung Kling, Balik Bukit, Simpang Tanjung and Lereh had endured the chilling experience between midnight and 2am for the past few days.

Grandmother Azizah Md Derus, 68, said the knocking on her door was loud and could not have been caused by the wind.

“The knocking lasted several minutes and when it ended, I opened the door to check, but the compound was empty,” she said.

Meanwhile, Balik Bukit village head Aziz Jaffar, 57, denied that a youth managed to take a picture of the mysterious figure.

He said a group of villagers converged on early Sunday morning (Jan 30) after the loud knocks emerged in the neighbourhood to search for the source of the knock but they found nothing.

“I guess the picture was downloaded from another source just to scare the villagers,” he added.

The unnatural phenomenon was first reported in various parts of the country in late 2020.
