MIRI: No migrant worker was involved in the Ladang 3 fighting incident that happened last Sunday afternoon (Feb 7).

This is contrary to the claim by certain people, said Sarawak police commissioner Datuk Aidi Ismail.

He disclosed this today (Feb 16) in a statement to the media.

Claims of migrant workers’ involvement in the fight came about after a video clip lasting about one minute 26 seconds went viral in the social media. It showed a local man being beaten up by a group of men believed to be security guards of an oil palm estate in Niah.

The viral video has stirred public outcry.

Some have making misleading claims over the incident.

Aidi, in the statement, also urged the public to stop making any provocation on the incident as it could make things worse.

He added, the police from the Miri Criminal Investigation Department (CID) have made two separate arrests over the incident.

A group of five men believed to be involved in the incident were apprehended on Feb 10, he pointed out.
