Five police reports have been lodged against Seremban City Council (MBS) member K Senthivelu for allegedly touching on the sensitivities of Muslims by uploading an offensive image of independent preacher Dr Zakir Naik on Facebook recently.

Seremban district police chief ACP Mohd Said Ibrahim said the police have opened an investigation paper and would call Senthivelu (photo, above) to record his statement.

Police are investigating the case under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act for improper use of network facilities, he told reporters when met after attending the 1st Day At School Year 2020 event at Kolej Vokasional Ampangan (KVA) in Seremban, yesterday.

Also present was KVA director Sarimen Sapiei.
