KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman has received eight police reports in connection with the movie "Mentega Terbang".

Police secretary Deputy Comm Datuk Noorsiah Mohd Saaduddin said the case was being investigated by Bukit Aman’s CID Special Investigation Unit.

"The case is classified under Section 298A and Section 505(b) of the Penal Code as well as Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

"The CID unit is still investigating the matter and we will inform of any development," she said in a statement on Monday (March 6).

On Sunday (March 5), the Communications and Digital Ministry referred the case to National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (Finas) and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to take action over the movie production.

Minister Fahmi Fadzil had said that the both entities were investigating all aspects of regulation infringements committed by the production team.

Previously, clips from the movie went viral.

One of the clips showed the main character "Aisyah" openly asking for pork from a non-Muslim friend while another clip showed Aisyah's father letting her convert to another religion.

The clips drew the ire of netizens, who questioned how such a movie was approved for screening.
