He was reported to have said that after the Terawih and Moreh Ceremony with Prime Minister, at the Bukit Aman Mosque, Kuala Lumpur, yesterday.
Earlier, the North-East District Police Chief, ACP Anuar Omar had not rule out the possibility that Nhaveen’s case will be reclassified as murder and will be investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code.
He said, the five suspects aged between 16 and 20 are being investigated according to Section 148 of the Penal Code for rioting with weapons.
