KINI ROUNDUP | Key headlines you may have missed yesterday, in brief.

1. A silent protest by university students against former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak was violently disrupted by his supporters.

2. The protestors had gathered opposite a restaurant where Najib and his supporters were gathering. The supporters took offence over a cardbox cutout caricature of Najib and tore it up.

3. Najib said the students should not have protested and instead respect differences in opinions. However, Najib added that he regretted there was a scuffle.

4. Umno supreme council member Lokman Noor Adam accused the protestors of being DAP-linked provocateurs, while former Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin said Umno should condemn the behaviour of the assailants.

5. The owner of the restaurant where Najib's supporters were gathering in claimed he was misled by the organiser of the event.

6. Two Malaysiakini interns were harassed by several Umno leaders and Najib's supporters after the altercation with the students.

7. The doctor who conducted the autopsy on firefighter Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim told the Coroner's Court that the injuries on the deceased were inconsistent with those normally found on an assault victim and postulated that they were more likely the result of being hit by a vehicle.

8. Permatang Pauh MP Nurul Izzah Anwar has resigned as a member of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC). This follows the cabinet's decision to go against Pakatan Harapan’s promise that an opposition parliamentarian be picked to head the committee.

9. A dormant company is among the 164 companies that received open Approved Permits (APs) to import used cars in January.
