During this past week, the nation was shaken by the news of a 6-year-old boy with autism who first went missing and was found dead later 200 metres away from his house.
Once the police revealed that the case was a murder case, it seems that many people started speculating on social media.
Selangor police chief Datuk Hussein Omar Khan has said they have detected inappropriate comments on TikTok about the case. A screenshot was also uploaded on TikTok showing the condition of the boy’s body during the search, which went viral.
He urges the public not to comment on the case, as reported by BERNAMA.
“The case is still under investigation by police and such comments not only create public anxiety but also disturb the emotions of a family grieving over the loss of a beloved child.”
“We ask the public to give space to police to complete the investigation and track down the suspect,” he stated.
The boy was said to be missing on Tuesday afternoon, and his body was found at about 10 pm on Wednesday. After the post-mortem results were made available, the police classified the case as murder.
Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department director Datuk Seri Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain said that the boy was murdered somewhere else, and his body was dumped at the spot.
We hope that the little boy will rest in peace and that whoever did this despicable act will face justice.
