SINGERS Sufian Suhaimi and Ismail Izzani are astounded by the behaviour of some fans who would send them obscene photos on social media and stalk them in real life, reported RAP, the entertainment pullout of Harian Metro.
Sufian, 25, said he was disturbed by such behaviour, which he described as sexual harassment.
“I was shocked to receive obscene photos on social media. I never expected my fans to go to that extent.
“I consider it an invasion of my privacy. I worry that other problems might surface because of technology,” he said.
Ismail, 17, said he was not only followed to the toilet, but also had fans trailing his car.
“Maybe they have good intentions, but it’s not reasonable for them to do that.
“Not only is it an invasion of my privacy but it’s also dangerous.
“I thank my fans for supporting me. But for those with ill intentions, I apologise, because that’s just not my style,” he was quoted as saying.
> The daily also reported the success of Terengganu police in arresting three men for prostituting a Vietnamese girl and advertising her services, costing between RM160 and RM200, on WeChat.
The men, aged between 19 and 38, had allegedly forced the 18-year-old girl into prostitution.
She claimed that she received only half of the money.
The suspects were arrested during a raid at a hotel in the city at about 12.30pm on Oct 20.
Terengganu CID chief Asst Comm Fazlisyam Abdul Majid said the group moved around in a van, and stayed in one location for not more than two weeks to avoid detection.
“The group also operated in Kedah and Kuala Lumpur using the same modus operandi to lure customers,” he was quoted as saying.
