"I, Haikal, would like to explain about the video that went viral recently. We have gone to the police station to correct many statements that were false.

"What is true is that it was my fault for putting the vape in the baby’s mouth. The vape was no longer functioning. The baby often played with it. The police have recorded my statement," he said in a social media post.

Through his Instagram Story, Haikal also said sorry for what happened.

"It can’t be denied, it’s my fault, our fault, and I apologise to all.
