Help! There is orang minyak behind my house

A FAMILY is traumatised after several sightings of orang minyak forced them to temporarily move out from their house at Kampung Laksamana in Gombak.

Kamal Bahari Satar, 36, told Sinar Harian that the decision was made after the family was disturbed for five days.

“My sister-in-law repeatedly saw the apparition inside and outside our house,” he said on Tuesday.

Orang minyak, or translated as oily man in Malay, is a supernatural rapist who uses black grease as a night-time camouflage.

Kamal Bahari said only female family members could see the orang minyak.

The apparition had locked family members inside the house late Saturday night.

“We saw a black heap underneath the kitchen table.

“When other residents poked it with a bamboo stick, we could see blood stains,” he said.

According to Kamal Bahari, police also found black footprints outside the house where the alleged incident took place.

He added that his sister-in-law was later treated with alternative therapies after she heard whispers asking her to step outside the house.

“Thankfully, she has recovered but we do not want to take any chances as I have a 22-year-old younger sister,” said Kamal Bahari.

Watch me masturbate and I'll pay you a monthly salary of RM6,000 plus a car

A 21-YEAR-OLD woman was surprised when someone offered her a RM6,000 job as a personal assistant. A car and all-expenses paid shopping trips were also thrown in.

But what was more shocking was an unusual request by her boss he wanted her to watch him masturbate.

Harian Metro reported that the woman, known only as Rubi, said she was approached by a man while she was about to pay for her parking in Kajang, Selangor, last month.

“The man, who was in his mid-40s, introduced himself as Riduan. He claimed that he owns a company which supplies foreign workers,” Rubi said.

Initially, Riduan offered her a job as a clerk with a salary of RM1,200.

“When I showed interest, he upped the salary to RM6,000 to be his personal assistant. I was told to accompany him for shopping and to sometimes talk to him on the phone. However, he started to act strangely and asked me to watch him masturbate,” she said.

Don't ever jilt a woman or you will turn to ashes

He had allegedly promised to leave his wife for her but went back on his word.

It was reported that Mehboob had tried to stab her a few days earlier.

Police said Mehboob was tricked into a final meeting, where Seema, her younger brother and cousin were waiting.
While he was talking to Seema, he was hit on the head by her younger brother and knocked unconscious.

He was later strangled and burnt and his body was dumped in the nearby forest.

I give you RM50, you give me sex


EVEN after divorcing her husband, a single mother of two is still being abused by him, Harian Metro reported.

“We were fine at first, but once our marriage became known to his first wife, he started psychologically torturing me,” Elina, 39, said.

Unable to tolerate the abuse, Elina moved house and asked for a divorce.

However, the man asked for sexual favours in return for RM50 each time.

He even sent Elina’s two sons, aged one and four, out during these “sessions”.

She also claimed to be under the spell of black magic, as she was unable to deny her ex-husband.

“I am even more convinced of this as I have found various types of oil and talisman in his possession,” she said.

Elina lodged a report with the Malaysian Muslim Consumers Association recently regarding the matter.

Hey drivers, not only you have to watch out for car jackers, mat rempits or crash and rob robbers.... now beware of con-mechanis

Motorists will have to look out for “mechanics on wheels”, seen as another threat on the road these days.

These so-called mechanics prey on lone drivers, claiming there is something wrong with their car and offering on-the-spot repairs at exorbitant prices.

“One of their most common tactics is to throw diesel on the wheel of your car, causing it to emit smoke due to the heat and friction,” said City CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Ku Chin Wah.

They would then try to get the attention of the car driver and volunteer to fix the vehicle, he said yesterday.

Once they manage to dupe someone to alight from the car, SAC Ku said the “mechanic” would lead the victim to a deserted area where he would pretend to check the vehicle.The victim would be told that his car parts had malfunctioned. The “mechanic” would offer to replace them for him.

However, the motorist would likely end up with the same part which had been repainted and sold back to him at inflated prices.

Police, who have received several reports about the scam have cautioned motorists to remain in their vehicles and not to be fooled by the “mechanics”.

“They may seem like good Samaritans trying to helping you, but the best thing to do is to ignore them and go to a trusted mechanic,” SAC Ku said.

Journalist T.T. Kitt, 24, said he almost fell victim to the scam while driving along the Federal Highway at 1pm on Thursday (see sidebar).

Another motorist, who declined to be named, said he had a similar experience driving in Jalan Universiti a few months ago.

These motorcyclists, he said, wore T-shirts with the logo of a petrol station and claimed to be their staff.

They took him to an isolated place and tried to sell him car parts for about RM1,000. These were actually parts from his own car which the culprits had repainted in gold.

“I told them I could not pay and they got angry,” he said. “I had to call some friends over before they left.”

However, he lost RM200 to the conmen whom he had paid earlier as a deposit for the car parts - The Star

Not only police can jail you, your hubby too!

There are brothels in Malaysia and they are frequented by schoolboys

Schoolboys make up about 3% of those frequenting brothels in the Klang Valley, according to Kita Selangor.

Kita Selangor chief Azmi Othman said what was even more shocking was that the brothels were located less than 500m from police stations.

“Gaming outlets are also located near the brothels. Don't tell me the police are not aware of what is going on. Furthermore, the brothels have been directly offering sex services, without having to use massage parlours or karaokes as fronts,” the political party leader said.

Although police had raided many of the brothels and gaming outlets, businesses ran as usual after the raids, Azmi added.

He said his committee initiated the survey after a 16-year-old boy from Banting confessed in a Malay tabloid in April that he had been frequenting a brothel in Kuala Lumpur since last year.

“We have so far monitored brothels in four locations, and found that between 10% and 15% of the thousands of customers are barely 21, and between 3% and 5% are under 18,” he said.

Azmi said the underage group was legally barred from smoking, drinking and entering entertainment outlets.

“But here we have schoolboys entering brothels easily and paying hookers for sex,” he said.

Azmi is offering the media a guided tour to the brothels in Klang Valley to record the activities of the underage boys.

“We have no choice but to turn to the media and the rakyat, as we have lost hope in political parties, the local councils and the police.

“Only the rakyat can put pressure on the authorities to act, but the rakyat need to see the evidence through the media,” he said.

Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid said they had conducted raids many times.

“We have booked the suspected hookers many times. But they roam free on bail when they plead not guilty in court and opt for trial,” he said.

Stressing that all the relevant authorities must make a concerted effort to effectively check vice activities, ACP Wan Abdul Bari said such businesses thrive because of their customers - The Star

What do you call male sex workers?

A GROUP of male sex workers have been scouring for clients in Penang using various social networks, Nanyang Siang Pau reported.

The men placed advertisements on the Internet, stating they were looking for “friends”.

Some of the men even posted their contact numbers and sexy poses of themselves with price tags attached in photographs, the daily reported.

The male sex workers were from China, India, Thailand, Monaco, Australia and New Zealand, it said, adding that they would stay in hotels as guests to avoid being caught in a raid.

They reportedly charged between RM150 and RM250 per session while those from Western countries charged an extra RM100.

However, an investigative reporter found out that these sex workers were willing to mark down the price when he claimed he couldn't afford their rates.

Customers were also told to pay for transport fees if the prostitutes were to provide their “services” outside the hotels where they are based.

Only 15 yrs old but he aready owed thousands to loan sharks

A 15-year-old boy is among 409 borrowers of loans from Ah Long (loan sharks) whose cases have been referred to the MCA Public Complaints Bureau this year.

Bureau chief Datuk Micheal Chong said Monday that although cases of young people borrowing from Ah Long were isolated, the problem should be viewed seriously to prevent more from getting trapped in Ah Long loans.

It is understood that the teenager, who is from here, had borrowed more than RM10,000 from Ah Longs to indulge in online gambling.

You better donate to Barisan Nasional or else ...... you are scammed

A new telephone scam demands victims to give “donations” allegedly for Barisan Nasional’s election fund.

The “Bukit Aman police scam” began three weeks ago with victims receiving phone calls from a number registered under the Bukit Aman Police Headquarters.

A “Datuk Halim” from the Commercial Crime desk would inform victims of a money laundering charge against them and ask them to deposit money in an account for the election fund.

Three near-victims approached Chong, who said there had been at least eight similar cases this year.

“They claimed to be acting on the Prime Minister’s orders and asked between RM3,000 and RM5,000 from each victim,” Chong said.

Telephone scam losses amounted to more than RM1.5mil this year, while Internet fraud losses stand at RM1.8mil.

She gave RM1 million to an online lover she had not met

An insurance broker received a rude shock when she lost more than RM1mil in an Internet scam.

The woman, identified only as Lim, 47, gave RM1,021,000 in total to Kevin Axcel Brown @ Joe, whom she “met” in an online matchmaking site in September.

Joe claimed he was a 48-year-old Canadian chemical engineer with Petronas in Tereng­ganu and had used different telephone numbers to communicate.

MCA’s Public Services and Complaints Department head Datuk Michael Chong said most cases of Internet fraud involved promises of joint business ventures and marriage.

“There have been 13 cases of Internet fraud this year and nine of the victims were female.

“None of them had seen their scammers’ faces and yet could fall in love with them,” Chong added.

Joe had asked Lim for a RM1mil loan last October to settle his financial troubles and she deposited it into three different bank accounts registered under the name of Zanariah.

He then said he was abroad, but asked her to meet him at KLIA on Dec 7.

She waited for four hours in vain.

She had also transferred an extra US$7,000 (RM21,000) for Joe’s travel expenses.

Besides her savings, Lim had also borrowed from friends, family and financial organisations to raise the RM1mil.

All the major dailies Sin Chew Daily, China Press and Nanyang Siang Pau reported that an enforcement officer said to be from the Kota Baru Municipal Council issued the summons during a raid on Monday.

After 20 years their flats are now deemed safe to be occupied

After waiting for 20 years, the owners of flats of Taman Angkasa were at last given their Certificate of Fitness today. The 2,000 odd residents of 28 blocks of flats received their certificates from the Minister of Federal Territory, Datuk Raja Nong Chik.

The Certificate of Fitness (CF) is an official document that is issued by the city’s authority to acknowledge that a building is safe to be occupied.

I wonder how for for 20 years they had been living in flats that were not recognised as "safe to be occupied".

Get me a young second wife or.........

A 57-YEAR-old Malaysian Muslim man assaulted his wife and threatened to shoot her after she failed to secure him a young second wife, news reports said today.

Mohamad Haris Daud, a local police chief in Kuantan in central Pahang state, said the man forced his 60-year-old wife to seek the consent of a woman in her 30s to be his second wife.

The frightened wife then went to the woman's house but found out that she was already married, he said.

"After she told her husband that the woman was married, he ran amok and started beating her and threatened to cut her with a machete'', Chief Mohamad was quoted as saying by the Malay-language Utusan Malaysia newspaper.

Chief Mohamad said the man, a security guard and member of civil volunteer corps RELA, which rounds up illegal immigrants, also threatened to shoot her with a shotgun after she failed to obtain the consent from the other woman.

Muslim men in Malaysia are allowed up to four wives but activists and women's groups say polygamy is cruel and has deviated from its original purpose in Islam, which was to protect widows and orphans.

Islam is the official religion of Malaysia, where more than 60 per cent of its 27 million people are Muslim Malays. Polygamy is illegal for non-Muslims.

Police have detained the husband and he is being investigated for criminal intimidation.

If you frequent massage parlour for sex, don't blame yourself but blame your wife

The Obedient Wives Club is set to stir up another controversy with a member here blaming women for husbands who indulge in illegal sexual relationships.

Hajiera Hartley said women who did not fulfil the sexual needs of their husbands caused the men to look for illicit affairs.

She said a survey carried out recently by the club showed that only 10% of Malay wives understood the sexual needs of their husbands.

“Most married Malay women are busy with domestic chores and ignore the sexual needs of their husbands.

“A sexually satisfied husband can lead to a harmonious family,” she told a press conference on the club’s War Against Illicit Sex campaign at the Global Ikhwan Sdn Bhd office in Lahar Yooi, near Tasek Gelugor, yesterday.

Hajiera said Islam teaches Muslim wives to offer themselves 100% to their husbands and advised women to dress attractively for their husbands.

Soon you can send your meddling mother-in-law to jail

Meddlesome in-laws who cause their children to beat their spouses will be severely dealt with when the Domestic Violence Act 1994 is amended.

The amendments, among others, would also allow victims of domestic violence to file reports at police stations nationwide instead of within their residential districts as currently practised.

Deputy Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Heng Seai Kie said the amended Act would be tabled in the Dewan Negara on Dec 9 before it is gazetted.

She said the ministry had received numerous complaints about parents and other in-laws who instigated their kin to abuse their spouses and felt the culprits needed to be dealt with, along with the offenders.

“There have been many cases where mothers-in-law, grandmothers and stepmothers were instrumental in causing the offenders to abuse their wives or children.

“This is a form of emotional and psychological abuse that must be curbed to retain peace and harmony in the family,” she told reporters after opening a World Children’s Day celebration at the Kulim Landmark Central shopping centre yesterday.

If you impersonate a woman, we will arrest you

THE Sabah Islamic Affairs Department stopped a transvestite fashion show held at an entertainment centre in a shopping mall in Kota Kinabalu.

Harian Metro reported that the show, called “Pink Tiffany”, had 19 contestants who were dressed skimpily.

The department's religious enforcement deputy head Khamis Jamil said all of them were taken to the Kota Kinabalu police headquarters to have their statements recorded.

Award given, award retracted

The organisers of this year’s Anugerah Industri Muzik (AIM) awards are retracting the Best Song Award from singer-songwriter Yuna.

Yuna, whose real name is Yunalis Zara, was announced as winner of the much-coveted award for her single Penakut along with the Best Vocal Performance (Female) and Anugerah Kembara titles at the awards show organised by the Recording Industry of Malaysia (RIM) on Nov 12.

News of the award rectification leaked and set various social networking sites abuzz on Wednesday.

Still smiling: Although surprised, Yuna has accepted the retraction in good faith.

Yesterday, RIM co-chairman Rosmin Hashim announced that there was a “misinterpretation of the awards criteria” by Ernst & Young – the appointed external auditors – during the judging process.

Rosmin added that the remedial steps were necessary to ensure the integrity of the AIM franchise.

Zahirudin Abdul Rahim, a partner at Ernst & Young, also apologised for the glitch.

“Due to the misinterpretation, the winner for the Song of the Year award that was announced at the AIM Awards show this year was incorrect,” said Zahirudin.

The Best Song award will now go to pop singer Anuar Zain for his single Sedetik Lebih, which also won the Best Performance in a Song (Male) and Best Pop Song at the awards show.

Meanwhile, Yuna, 24, said that while she was surprised when she first learned of the announcement, she accepted the committee’s decision.

“It is not something I expected, but I appreciate that the AIM organisers are trying to set things right.

“All award winners are to be treated fairly and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations to Anuar Zain,” she said.

This year’s awards show, which left its traditional home at the Putra World Trade Centre for Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil after 16 years, was fraught with controversies from the start after it was announced that the major album categories (pop, rock, hip hop, etc) would be dropped.

A media backlash ensued with boycotts over how the awards show, now in its 18th instalment, was being presented and organised.

It took only two phone calls to con a man of his RM260,000

A man impersonating as a police officer from Commercial Crime Investigation Department (JSJK) Bukit Aman and a woman as an officer of the Ministry of Finance Malaysia (MOF) managed to convince a auto mechanic to transfer a sum of RM263, 000 in his possession into two different accounts on Tuesday.

The victim, Teoh, 27, said at 1.30pm on 22 November, he received a call from a man who identified himself Corporal Marul, of the Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Division. The number used by Corporal Marul was 03-2266xxxx. The police officer claimed Teoh was involved in "Black Money" scam.

"At first I ignored the call before getting another call from a woman who introduced himself Aini of the MOF who also said the same thing a day later," he said, yesterday.

He said the woman involved asked him to clear his bank account since an investigation would be made on his account. She asked Teoh to transfer RM263, 000 into two different accounts for the purpose of the investigation and promised to return the money after the investigation was completed.

"After banking in the money on Saturday at 12.30pm, I called 03-2266xxxx again to speak with Corporal Marul, but a female police officer told me there was no such officer in Commercial Crime.

"The officer concerned asked me to make a police report because he had been cheated," he said.

The victim lodged a report at the Petaling Jaya police station and the case was submitted to the District Police Headquarters (IPD) Brickfields for further investigation. Meanwhile, Brickfields police chief Assistant Commissioner Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid confirmed receiving the report.

You can now buy babies by kilogram in Kuala Lumpur

Babies, like grocery items scrutinised by potential buyers at supermarket shelves, also have "price tags" based on their colour and weight.

This is only one of a few hard truths about the human trafficking industry in Malaysia -- now thriving as the world’s third most profitable business after weapons and drugs.

“A baby of Chinese origin, weighing a healthy three kilos, can be sold off starting from RM10,000,” said Yayasan Chow Kit senior manager Dr Hartini Zainuddin.

Hartini is no stranger to human trafficking, having worked here with the underage victims across the capital and Klang Valley.

Her shocking revelation drew groans of disbelief among Rotarians and guests at the Rotary Club of Pudu’s Vocational Awards presentation yesterday.

“I have seen a baby being sold off by the father for a mere RM20 in return for syabu, and another case where a baby was sold off for S$25,000," she said.

“There was also a case involving this one mother who sold off all her six children even before they were delivered. She sold them for RM15,000 each while still pregnant with them."

The wandering ghost ...

THE spirit of three-year-old Shearwel Ooi Ying Ying, believed to have been killed in an apartment in Penang four years ago, is said to be wandering in front of her aunt's house in Butterworth, reported China Press.

According to a neighbour's maid, she had seen a girl in a pink dress crying in front of the house, it reported.

Ying Ying was believed to have been killed on July 5, 2008, burnt and her bone fragments strewn in various places in Air Itam.

Her mother Jess Teh lodged a false missing person's report when Ying Ying had actually died.

On Feb 18, Ying Ying's alleged murderer Ong Chee Leong, 29, hanged himself in a prison clinic.

Ying Ying's aunt said she had dreamt of the girl more than 20 times this year.

“She always complained that she was feeling cold,” she said.

The family consulted two temple mediums and they suggested that the girl's remains be placed in a niche.

The family decided to place an empty urn with Ying Ying's toys at a Butterworth columbarium on Sunday.

“We hope that by conducting the ceremony, Ying Ying can finally rest in peace,” the aunt said.

Gay unconstitutional says Minister

A federal minister said today it is unconstitutional for a person to be homosexual in Malaysia, but did not back up his claims with any provision.

There are no provisions in the federal constitution which directly mention the sexual preference of individuals.

Go ahead with that one-night stand, if you catch AIDS just buy Toray Gecko, it will cure everything from AIDS to Manila Rose

Claims that a nocturnal Asian lizard could treat the HIV virus that causes AIDS have led to a sharp boom in illegal smuggling, putting the reptile at risk, an conservation group said Tuesday.

Demand for the Tokay Gecko has skyrocketed in recent years after online blogs, newspaper articles and wildlife traders extolled the consumption of the lizard’s tongue and internal organs as a miracle cure for HIV, TRAFFIC Southeast Asia said in a report.

TRAFFIC said such claims were unfounded and “indicative of an elaborate hoax.” The Philippines’ government in July also warned that using geckos to treat AIDS and impotence may put patients at risk.

“TRAFFIC is alarmed at the massive increase in trade of these geckos. If the trade continues to mushroom, it could take years to repair the damage currently being inflicted on gecko populations,” said Chris R.Shepherd, TRAFFIC’s regional deputy director.

The geckos, popular as pets in Asia, have long been used as traditional medicine for illnesses such as diabetes, asthma, skin disease and cancer, the report said. Their carcasses are dried up and ground into powder for consumption. In some parts of Asia, Tokay wine or whisky is consumed to boost energy - AP

It is understood, Siew Wah was depressed after failing to pay mahjong debt.

A few months ago, the victim had attempted suicide in the same way but was blocked by neighbors who were aware of her action.

Exports of Malaysian products picking up, including some backyard sex stimulants

Malaysian-made sex-enhancing stimulants appear to be sexing up nocturnal activities in Kerala, but the influx of illegal imports of the libido-boosters into the state is worrying drug control officials.

Sex stimulants from gel, aphrodisiac brew, herbal pill and anti-impotence drug mostly produced by Malaysian firms are household names in the southern Indian state.

"Many products like cream or gel for genital use are found to be manufactured in Malaysia, like places in Selangor.

"Marketing is usually done through MLM (multi-level marketing) and it is hard for us to monitor," Ravi S. Menon, assistant drugs controller of Kerala's central zone said in a telephone interview.

Some cash-rich Keralites, he said, were willing to splurge hefty sums to purchase pleasure-boosting items, often sold at exorbitant prices.

For instance, eight grams of sex stimulant gel for men was being sold for about 3,000 Indian rupees (RM200) in some parts of Kerala.

"There is a strong demand in Kerala for these items...they are usually imported, together with cosmetics," said Menon.

In July, last year, his department seized a large consignment of herbal aphrodisiac sent from a Malaysian port and illegally imported into Kerala, aimed at giving the state's very own age-old ayurvedic love-potions a run for the money.

If you are broke, just wait for more coins to fall from the sky

RESIDENTS of Taman Kledang in Sungei Siput were in for a shock when coins came raining down on Tuesday night.

The news of five sen and 10 sen coins falling from the sky spread like wildfire, resulting in many people rushing to the area to witness the unusual incident, Tamil Nesan reported.

The coins, however, looked burnt and have been handed over to the police here for further investigations.

One of the residents, P. Selvam, said a 10-year-old boy from the housing estate, T. Vishnu Nair, could predict when the next incident would happen.

He said about 40 coins dropped from the sky on Tuesday night,

“The coins continued to drop until late in the night. People here are very worried about what it means,” he added.

Christians using solar-powered talking Bibles to convert Muslims

Evangelical Christians are using high-tech devices such as solar-powered talking bibles to proselytize to Malay Muslims in Selangor, state lawmaker Datuk Hasan Ali said today.

Hasan, who is in charge of the state's Islamic affairs portfolio, said the state's religious authority (Jais) had discovered that Christian missionaries were now spreading their gospel through technologically-advanced means apart from setting up welfare groups providing cash and other financial aid to single mothers and the destitute.

He added that Jais's research showed Christian evangelists were spreading their faith to young Muslim students in free tuition classes and counselling sessions, besides distributing Christian pamphlets in public places, homes, universities and places that were ostensibly called "community centres" to carry out their evangelical work.

The website claims the device's batteries can be recharged using solar power.

The ex-PAS state commissioner disclosed this in a written reply to a question from Umno-Sungai Burong assemblyman Datuk Mohd Shamsudin Lias.

According to a website called Book of Joe, the palm-sized radio-like device contains all the books in the New and Old Testaments and is fitted with batteries that will run for almost 10 hours before needing to be recharged, whether by the sun, a light bulb or a nine-volt AC adapter. It costs only US$99.95 (RM310).

This latest disclosure, after a controversial August 3 raid by Selangor Islamic authorities on the Damansara Utama Methodist Church (DUMC) in Petaling Jaya, could trigger another Christian-Muslim conflict.

Christian leaders have consistently denied claims that they are attempting to convert Muslims, but relations between the two creeds with roots in the Middle East continue to smoulder in multi-religious, multi-cultural Malaysia where the religion of the federation is Islam as stated in the Federal Constitution.

Hasan said Jais is working to counter Christian proselytism of Muslims by holding sessions to clarify Islamic doctrine and its laws.

The lawmaker said Jais is also seeking to strengthen the enforcement of the Non-Islamic Religions (Control of Propagation Amongst Muslims) Enactment 1988 as well as the Syariah Criminal Offences Enactment 1995 - The Malaysian Insider

Note: I never heard anything as stupid as this. Hasan Ali should come out with figures how many Muslims have been converted? If not, this is plain insult to all Muslims. Takkanlah Melayu bodoh sangat.

Two Elephants Extorting Orang Asli Villagers

The aboriginal population of Kampong Keladan near Kampong Aur here suffered a great loss when two wild elephants destroyed their crops yesterday. The elephants, believed to have come from Bukit Ibam Forest Reserve have destroyed subsistence crops such as bananas, oil palm seedlings, rubber, bamboo, coconut and betel nut trees.

A resident, Awang Mansur, 49, said he saw the two elephants at night when they into his garden and destroyed the rubber tree, nut and banana. He believed the elephants to be mother and child pair and their loud voice had awakened him from sleep.

Lachai Chukin, 76, said he did not know what caused his pet dog to bark two nights in a row until told neighbors about the elephant attacks.

"I thought my house was broken into but apparently the elephants had invaded my fenced garden that housed banana crops," he said. He said he was shocked to see the footprints and droppings scattered in his garden yesterday morning. "I may become a victim of violence by these animals if they are not transferred back to the original habitat," he said.

Jala Heng, 64, said the village had been attacked by elephants at the beginning of last year but their crops were not badly damaged as yesterday. He said the villagers believed that the elephant were still nearby.

Meanwhile, the head of Umno branch of Kampong Aur, Hamidi Nura Mat said urged the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (Wildlife) to take immediate action by moving the elephants into a more suitable habitat for the safety of the villagers.
