No riot in Sg Petani

SUNGAI PETANI: Kedah police have refuted a rumour that a riot had taken place here and a curfew had been imposed on the township since Sunday.

In a midnight press conference, state police deputy chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Abdul Ghafar Rajab said that there was no such incident.

He said the rumour was spread through the social media and police had detected postings on Facebook and Twitter after a purported video of the incident was uploaded on YouTube yesterday.

“It is the work of irresponsible quarters. The public order in Sungai Petani is under control,” said SAC Abdul Ghafar.
