Police Deny Rumours That Pahang Supporter Was Killed In Fight With JDT Fans

KUANTAN, Feb 9 (Bernama) -- Pahang police today refuted claims in several social media sites that a football supporter from Pahang had died in a fight with supporters of Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) last Friday.

Kuantan District Police chief Supt Abdul Aziz Ahmad said, to date police have not received any report on the matter.

"The people should not be easily taken in by such rumours, especially when they are posted on the social media. Such provocation should not take place and should be stopped as they can lead to fights," he told Bernama here.

He said police only received four reports with regard to clashes in Kuantan and Pekan and investigations are going on to find the cause of the fracas.

Meanwhile, Pekan District Police chief Supt Yahaya Othman also denied such rumours and urged everyone to stop disseminating rumours on social websites.

"The allegations are untrue. In fact, the photos uploaded on the social pages are also false. It must be stopped immediately as it can rouse the ire of the public, specifically football fans in our country and prolong the quarrel," he said.

On Friday, provocations between the supporters of both teams after the Super League match resulted in a fight outside the Darul Makmur Stadium here and in front of the Pekan District Police Headquarters, resulting in injuries to several supporters and members of the public.

Nevertheless, police managed to defuse the fight and controlled the situation before the supporters of JDT boarded their buses and headed home.
