AKIBAT perebutan harta pusaka, seorang lelaki tergamak melanggar dan menetak abang serta kakak iparnya sebelum dia ditemui mati di sebuah lombong di Antara Gapi, Hulu Selangor, pagi semalam.

Lelaki berusia 65 tahun dan isteri berusia 56 tahun itu cedera di bahagian kaki serta tangan selepas ditetak adiknya menggunakan parang.

Ketua Polis Daerah Hulu Selangor, Superintendan Arsad Kamaruddin berkata, sebelum itu suami isteri terbabit yang menunggang motosikal dilanggar suspek di hadapan kuil di Kampung Chuang Rasa, Rasa, pada 7.56 pagi.

“Suspek yang menaiki Proton Iswara kemudian menetak suami isteri itu sebelum melarikan diri. Seorang lelaki yang melihat kejadian menghampiri mangsa yang terbaring dalam keadaan berlumuran darah.

“Saksi lain terdengar bunyi dentuman kuat dan apabila keluar rumah mendapati suami isteri terbaring tepi jalan.

“Kedua-dua mangsa kemudian dihantar ke Hospital Selayang untuk mendapatkan rawatan dan dilaporkan stabil,” katanya dalam kenyataan, malam tadi.

Arsad berkata, hasil siasatan mendapati suspek adalah adik kandung mangsa lelaki sebelum menemui sebilah parang digunakan suspek di tepi jalan simpang tiga Pekan Rasa berdekatan perhentian bas.

Katanya, selepas kejadian itu, polis menerima laporan daripada orang awam mengenai penemuan sebuah kereta dipercayai milik suspek di lombong Antara Gapi pada 1.10 tengah hari.

“Kereta itu dijumpai terjunam di tebing lombong dan pintu bahagian pemandu dalam keadaan terbuka. Mayat turut ditemui dalam keadaan terapung berhampiran kereta itu.

“Polis meminta bantuan bomba untuk mengangkat mayat dan hasil pemeriksaan pada fizikal tiada kecederaan serta unsur jenayah. Mayat kemudian dibawa ke Hospital Kuala Kubu Baru untuk bedah siasat,” katanya.

IPOH – Gadis istimewa yang dilahirkan tanpa kedua-dua tangan, Norfarrah Syahirah Shaari melahirkan rasa bangga apabila videonya menjahit pakaian perlindungan diri (PPE) menggunakan kaki dikongsi media antarabangsa, Fox 32 Chicago.

Norfarrah Syahirah, 32, berkata, pengiktirafan itu sesuatu yang sangat bermakna apatah lagi dia sendiri tidak pernah terfikir kekurangan itu menyebabkan dia dikenali hingga ke luar negara.

“Apabila saya mulakan projek PPE bersama rakan-rakan dulu, niat saya cuma mahu bantu petugas barisan hadapan yang bertungkus-lumus memerangi wabak koronavirus (Covid-19).

“Saya gunakan kemahiran menjahit saya untuk tujuan itu dan video aktiviti menjahit tersebut saya kongsi dengan harapan memberi inspirasi kepada orang ramai terutama kurang upaya (OKU),” katanya ketika dihubungi Sinar Harian hari ini.

Video berdurasi 1 minit dan 59 saat itu dimuat naik di laman Facebook Fox 32 Chicago, kelmarin dan sehingga kini telah ditonton 53,000 pelayar.

Dengan tajuk Bravo: Born without arms, a Malaysian women has been using her feet to sew PPE for frontline workers battling the coronavirus pandemic, perkongsian itu mendapat reaksi positif warganet dari seluruh dunia.

Pembantu Tadbir di Kolej Komuniti Teluk Intan (KKTI) itu berkata, dia hanya mengetahui perkara itu sebaik dimaklumkan rakan.

“Rakan beritahu yang video saya disiarkan di satu laman berita antarabangsa. Pada mulanya saya memang tak percaya kerana beranggapan ia video biasa sahaja.

“Maka bila dapat tonton sendiri, saya rasa sangat terkejut dan terharu, tak sangka usaha kecil dapat pengiktirafan sebegitu sekali,” katanya.

Menganggap pengiktirafan itu sebagai satu semangat dan motivasi diri, Norfarrah Syahirah berazam untuk terus menjadi inspirasi dan teladan yang baik kepada masyarakat.

“Ada juga yang mencadangkan saya buat video memasak, mengemas dan membasuh. Insha-ALLAH ia dalam perancangan dan akan saya usahakan.

“Harapan saya cuma mahu mereka yang senasib seperti saya boleh berdikari dan tidak patah semangat untuk jalani kehidupan sepertimana orang lain,” katanya.

Sebelum ini, gadis kelahiran Bagan Datuk ini pernah berkongsi video memandu kereta menggunakan kaki dan tutorial memakai tudung yang turut tular dan mendapat perkongsian ramai.

Pertengahan April lalu, menerusi projek #DariKomunitiUntukKomuniti, Norfarrah Syahirah bersama sembilan sukarelawan yang juga kakitangan KKTI, dibantu 25 tukang jahit di sekitar kolej berkenaan berjaya menghasilkan 252 gaun isolasi yang kemudiannya disumbangkan kepada petugas kesihatan Hospital Teluk Intan (HTI) dan Klinik Kesihatan Teluk Intan.

PUTRAJAYA – Kerajaan membenarkan pergerakan rentas daerah dalam yang negeri sama dan polis pula boleh mengesan taktik pemandu yang mahu merentas negeri kerana sudah biasa dengan jawapan orang ramai sebelum ini.

Menteri Kanan (Keselamatan), Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob berkata, bagi kes-kes di mana wujud dakwaan mengatakan polis tidak membenarkan mereka merentas daerah sebenarnya tidak tepat.

“Buat masa ini rakyat di sesebuah negeri dibenarkan di dalam daerah. Sebagai contoh pergerakan dari Kuantan ke Kuala Lipis walaupun perjalanan mengambil masa kira-kira empat jam, ia tetap dibenarkan,” katanya pada Sidang Media (Non-Health) selepas Mesyuarat Khas Menteri-Menteri Mengenai Pelaksanaaan Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan di sini hari ini.

Beliau berkata, mereka yang berada di negeri sama dibenarkan pulang ke kediaman ibu bapa tetapi perlu mengikut prosedur operasi standard (SOP) perayaan.

“Mereka tidak dibenarkan berkumpul sehingga 20 orang dalam sebuah rumah. Jika didapati berdegil dan banyak kenderaan di hadapan rumah akan berhadapan dengan tindakan polis. Walaupun kita benarkan tetapi SOP raya tetap sama,” katanya.

A 20-year-old woman, said to be a victim of cyberbullying, was found dead at her home in Penang on Tuesday, 19 May

According to New Straits Times, she was found hanged in her home in Bukit Tengah.

The victim’s brother called her at 9.30pm, but she did not answer. It forced him to break into her room and he found her unresponsive.

She was rushed to a nearby hospital, but was declared dead by the doctors.

It is revealed that the victim, R Thivya Nayagi, died by suicide after a TikTok video of her with a co-worker went viral on Facebook.

The video was filmed by Thivya, which featured her with her Nepali colleague. They worked in a 7-Eleven store together.

However, the video was re-shared by several fake Facebook accounts with malicious captions, including one account with 70,000 followers called ‘Joker Oruvan’.

The victim’s elder sister, R Logeswari, told New Straits Times that her sister had been receiving mean comments on the Internet because Thivya was spotted with a foreign worker in the video.

“The post had been widely shared by netizens who continue to make derogatory remarks, suggesting that she was ‘an easy character’,” said Logeswari.

“Thivya did not only suffer from cyberbullying but people started to recognise her from the video.

“Although we know the truth of her relationship with the boy in the video, yet she was feeling down over the things being said about her,” the sister added.

Social activist David Marshel, who is currently helping the family, said Thivya is believed to have taken her own life after feeling humiliated by netizens’ comments, reported Malaysiakini.

Logeswari said her sister’s passing shocked the whole family because Thivya had always known to be brave and outspoken

“Now we have lost our sister because someone wants to be famous on social media,” she said, adding that they had just lost their mother last year.

Logeswari said Thivya had asked the fake accounts to remove the video, but her request was ignored.

David said the account that instigated the cyberbullying has since been deactivated after Thivya’s death became public knowledge.

A police report has been lodged by Thivya’s brother and David has helped the family to file a report to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) yesterday, 20 May

“We hope the MCMC will take firm action against this Facebook account, which slandered a complete stranger to the point of causing death,” said David, who is also the Malaysian Tamilar Kural president.

“It is also saddening that the Facebook account’s administrator refused to entertain the family’s explanation and their request to remove the video.

“We hope the MCMC will see this case as a precedent for taking stern action against Facebook accounts that only slander people.”

Asking for help is not a sign of weakness.If you or anyone you know may be at risk of suicide, please call Befrienders at +603-76272929 or via Skype with the ID ‘BefKL Skype 1’.

Chinese doctors are noticing that the virus is behaving differently among patients in this second wave compared to the original outbreak in Wuhan, suggesting that the virus may be mutating and making it harder to detect.

According to Free Malaysia Today, patients from the new clusters in the northeast provinces of Jilin and Heilongjian have appeared to carry the virus for a longer period of time and are taking longer to recover.

The incubation period of the virus is said to be about 14 days on average, but cases in this new cluster in the northeast region appear to be taking longer to show symptoms, making it harder for authorities to detect before it spreads further.

Qiu Haibo, one of the China’s top critical care doctors treating patients in the northeast region, said that “the longer period during which infected patients show no symptoms has created clusters of family infections.”

He said that doctors have noticed patients in the northeast cluster seem to have damage mostly in their lungs, whereas patients in Wuhan suffered multi-organ damage across the heart, kidney and gut.

This new cluster is believed to have come from infected individuals from Russia, one of the countries with one of the worst outbreaks in Europe, after genetic sequencing showed the similarities between the northeast cases and the Russian-linked ones, reported Bloomberg

Scientists are still trying to understand this ever-changing virus and the differences they are noticing could be because they are able to observe patients more thoroughly and from an earlier stage than those in the original outbreak in Wuhan.

Seeing that Covid-19 is a new virus, the original outbreak in Hubei that infected over 68,000 people was so overwhelming for the local health-care system that they had to resort to treating only critical patients.

However, even though this second wave is much smaller than Hubei’s outbreak, many things about the virus have yet to be discovered which is hindering governments all around the world from curbing its spread.

China has one of the most comprehensive virus detection and testing regimes globally, and yet is still struggling to contain its new cluster.

As nations all across the globe struggle to find a balance between keeping their people under lockdown and maintaining their economy, the Covid-19 virus will continue to spread. We will never know when all this will end, but we can still do our part today by practising social distancing and avoiding crowds.
