KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Inspector-Police Tan Sri Noor Rashid Ibrahim yesterday denied Bukit Aman police headquarters has issued an alert on an attempt by the Islamic State terrorists to inject HIV virus to members of the public.
It was purportedly executed by posing as representatives from a medical college who carried out free blood sugar screening.
“Bukit Aman had never issued such a message.
“I hope the people do not believe in the message,” Rashid said when contacted concerning the message that went viral on social media such as WhatsApp.
He, however, urged the public to be cautious when being visited by unknown individuals at home to avoid becoming victims of robbery, fraud and so on. – Bernama
