Claims of mass rally to topple govt untrue, say police

KUALA LUMPUR: The police have confirmed that two viral messages circulating online about a mass rally to be staged here to topple the existing government are untrue.

Dang Wangi district police chief ACP Noor Dellhan Yahaya said the security situation is under control and the public is advised not to spread or share these statements on any social media platform.

"The public is also reminded to always be extra vigilant and not make any statements that could cause public concern. Legal action can be taken against those involved," he said in a statement on Sunday (March 19).

On Saturday (March 19), two almost identical messages were circulating on social media which claimed that there would be a mass rally in the capital. – Bernama
