Police Deny Kulim-Bandar Baharu MP Held Under I.S.A.
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 10 (Bernama) -- Police today dismissed as a rumour talk that Kulim-Bandar Baharu Member of Parliament Zulkifli Noordin was detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) last night.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said it was a rumour probably started by irresponsible people.
He advised the people not to allow themselves to be influenced by such rumours.
Ismail said the police would investigate the Internet blogs said to have published news of the alleged detention.
Zulkifli, 46, of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) was among the people who had gathered to protest the Bar Council's forum on conversions to Islam here yesterday.
He also led a four-member delegation to state the demonstrators' position to the forum organisers.
