A shocking video posted on Twitter on 10th February shows an unidentified individual allegedly being beaten, and according to some accounts, stomped to death.
The caption claims that the incident took place at a temple in Sungai Petani, Kedah during Thaipusam and claims that the victim died on the spot.
The video shows a group of people attacking a young man who fell to the ground during the apparent fight. The victim had landed on an elevated step where his head was stomped a few times by the attackers.
Here’s the video:
However, while some people claimed that the victim had died from a broken neck, Kedah police said that the victim’s death was falsely reported.
According to Malaysia Kini, Kuala Muda district police chief Adzli Abu Shah said that a police report will be lodged for spreading false information.
“That is fake news. There was an incident, but it wasn’t fatal. There was no death and nobody was warded,” he said.
Adzli said that an investigating officer had been in touch with the victim, who sounded “alright” and was able to talk over the phone. Bakar Aran assempblyperson Simon Ooi also denied the incident based on information from the police.
The video has been viewed over 134,000 times and retweeted over 3,800 times.
Another video shows medical staff examining the victim’s body.
Let’s hope the police report is true and that the victim didn’t actually die. Nevertheless, we hope that the attackers will be punished for such a cruel act.
