KOTA BHARU – The social media was abuzz with a story about a motorist who saw a pocong (ghost) on a lonely road in Jeli.
It reported that the man who was driving along a road in Bukit Balah at 3.20am on Monday had a shock of his life when he saw a human-like figure wrapped in white cloth lying in the middle of the road.
He braked his car and shouted for help. Two villagers ran outside to see what was the commotion all about.
But the figure suddenly stood up and hopped away into the darkness.
The social media also shared photographs of the pocong and a police report lodged by a person by the name of Mohd Yusuke Yahya who stated in the report that he was a Fisheries Department officer.
The incident did not happen, said Jeli police chief Deputy Supt Yusof Jaafar.
“I advise the public not to believe such a story. We did not receive any report and we will take action against those who try to create public disturbance,” he said yesterday. – The Star Online
