Maxi Tumundo di kepala dan tangan, menjelang subuh, kelmarin.

Jurucakap polis, Iptu Martodewata, dari Balai Polis Belang berkata, pihaknya berusaha memastikan motif serangan itu.

“Namun, berdasarkan maklumat, suspek cemburu kerana mangsa mempunyai hubungan yang rapat dengan isterinya, apatah lagi ketiga-tiga mereka tinggal serumah.

“Hasil pemeriksaan mendapati mangsa luka di kepala dan tangan akibat ditetak dengan senjata tajam,” katanya.

Menurut laporan Tribun News, isteri suspek dikenali sebagai Nirma Abas, 36, berkata, sebelum kejadian dia dan suami sempat membeli makanan untuk adik iparnya itu yang berada di rumah.

Menurutnya, tiada sebarang pertikaian berlaku sebelum suaminya keluar manakala mangsa tidur di bilik belakang.

Namun, menjelang subuh, dia terdengar percakapan suaminya yang sukar dipastikan isi percakapannya di depan rumah.

“Suami saya mabuk kerana pengaruh alkohol.

“Ketika saya keluar untuk melihat, tiba-tiba parang sudah dilibas kepada mangsa. Saya menjerit melihat mangsa jatuh berlumuran darah,” katanya.

Suspek kemudian menyerah diri kepada polis dengan menahan sebuah kenderaan polis dan mengaku melakukan pembunuhan itu sebelum dia ditahan.

MELAKA – State Veterinary Services personnel shot a runaway 700kg buffalo dead after the animal left a trail of destruction at hotels and public amenities at Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock here.

The animal was shot at about 10.15am on Wednesday (Nov 13).

Melaka Tengah deputy OCPD Superintendent Raiz Mukhliz Azman Aziz said a 27-year-old saw the buffalo in a hotel here at 7.20am.

“The worker panicked and jumped from the second floor of the hotel. The Veterinary Services Department cordoned off the area where the male buffalo was with the help of other agencies before shooting it, ” he said.

Supt Raiz Mukhliz said the buffalo was then brought to a slaughterhouse in Jasin.

“We are looking for the owner of the animal, ” he said.

It is believed the buffalo strayed into Jonker Walk early Wednesday morning.

Casa De Rio hotel manager Michael Quay said several of his hotel’s assets were damaged when the buffalo trespassed into his hotel at about 6am.

“Our hotel’s CCTV caught the buffalo trespassing into the hotel and the footage showed the animal was in a state of panic, ” he said when interviewed.

Meanwhile, State Agriculture, Agro-based, Entrepreneur Development and Cooperative chairman Datuk Norhizam Hassan Baktee said attempts to capture the animal was futile as the buffalo turned aggressive after it was trapped inside a hotel.

Men also fall prey to love scams

November 14, 2019 | News | No Comments

KUALA LUMPUR – Not only Malaysian women but men have also fallen prey to love scams to a tune of more than RM67mil (S$21 million) this year, says Datuk Azis Jamman.

The Deputy Home Minister said out of the 1,303 love scam or parcel scam cases reported this year, 1,070 were female victims and 230 were male, with total losses of RM67,737,419.38.

“Macau scams chalked up a loss at RM94,040,451.65 from a total of 1,911 victims of which a majority, or 1,109, were female.

“Women are easy targets for these syndicates and for that reason, there is a need for more awareness on the ground.

“We realise that this issue has been going on for a long time in this country, and the ministry, especially the police, always stresses the importance to Malaysians, especially the women to understand these scams’ MO (modus operandi), ” he told reporters at a joint press conference in Parliament yesterday.

If people receive promotions or offers from unknown persons, they must check and verify first to ensure that they are not conned, Azis advised.

“With the advancement of technology, the issue of scams is not new, even in developed countries like the United States and the United Kingdom, scams are still happening.

“The ministry and the police will continue to work with the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry because women are the easiest targets, ” he added.

Its deputy minister Hannah Yeoh said based on the data, most scams mainly focused on women.

“The scams are still rampant and they will target women who are lonely. And because it involves friendships and relationships, they feel ashamed to even lodge a police report and suffer in silence for fear family members will judge them, ” said Yeoh.

The MO for a Macau scam is that the scammer would impersonate someone with authority such as a policeman or a bank officer over the phone and convince the victim that they need to pay money to avoid trouble.

For love scams or parcel scams, the scammer would strike up a friendship or relationship with the victim online and then convinces them to send money or entice the victim with a parcel delivery.

Yeoh said it was crucial for those who were being contacted by suspected scammers to not panic and to verify information first instead of immediately making transactions.

She said people should also avoid giving their contact number, bank details and IC number to strangers, especially those calling from unknown numbers.

Based on the 2019 statistics of five currently active syndicated commercial crime cases, investment scams took up the number one spot, recording the biggest loss at RM200,781,043.90.

Men were the biggest victims of investment scams, making up 577 victims out of a total of 842.

In second place are Macau scams while love scams or parcel scams came third, followed by non-existent loans which recorded a total loss of RM38,894,980.87 from a total of 4,151 victims.

Of these, 2,261 were male victims and 1,889 were female victims.

The fifth top scam is online purchase with 2,947 victims scammed of RM24,691,509.21. Of these, 1,906 were male and 1,040 were female victims.

Ibu bapa terjahat

November 14, 2019 | News | No Comments

SINGAPURA: Sepasang suami isteri mendera kejam anak lelaki mereka yang berusia lima tahun dengan mengurungnya dalam sangkar kucing sebelum menyimbahnya dengan air menggelegak semata-mata tidak mahu mandi, sehingga menyebabkan kematian kanak-kanak itu.

Azlin Arujunah dan suaminya Ridzuan Mega Abdul Rahman, kedua-duanya 27 tahun, sering memukul mangsa termasuk menggunakan penyapu, malah kanak-kanak itu juga tempang sedikit kerana tempurung lututnya senget akibat didera, lapor Daily Mail.

Dalam hari pertama perbicaraan terhadap mereka semalam, mahkamah diberitahu mangsa dikurung dalam sangkar kucing pada 22 Oktober 2016, kerana enggan mandi sebelum bapanya mencurahkan air sepanas sekurang-kurangnya 92 Celsius pada belakang dan betisnya.

Mangsa yang identitinya dirahsiakan mahkamah, rebah dan terus tidak bergerak, tetapi ibu bapanya tidak membawanya ke hospital, sebaliknya menunggu enam jam sebelum mendapatkan rawatan.

Malangnya, dia meninggal dunia sehari kemudian dan pasangan itu ditahan susulan laporan dibuat terhadap mereka oleh pihak hospital.

Saksi pendakwa pertama yang memberi keterangan terhadap Azlin dan Ridzuan semalam, Profesor Madya Loh Tsee Foong berkata, mangsa mengalami lecuran tahap ketiga yang meliputi 75 peratus badannya, kecederaan buah pinggang akut, penyahhidratan, patah hidung, luka pada wajahnya selain lambat bertutur.

Selain itu, mahkamah diberitahu, Ridzuan Mega sebelum itu pernah menekapkan sudu yang dipanaskan pada tapak tangan mangsa kerana ‘mencuri’ susu tepung untuk dimakan.

Mangsa juga pernah dilecurkan dengan air panas sekurang-kurangnya empat kali sebelum kematiannya.

Azlin dan Ridzuan menghadapi hukuman mati mandatori atau penjara seumur hidup bagi tuduhan bunuh.

Mahkamah diberitahu, mangsa diserahkan sebagai anak angkat selepas kelahirannya pada 2011 tetapi kembali bersama ibu bapa kandungnya pada 2015. Mangsa mula didera kira-kira setahun selepas itu.

He experienced a “sharp pain” while asleep and woke up to a living nightmare when his family found a cockroach in his ear canal.

You would think that’s the worst of it but when the 24-year-old Chinese man, identified as Lu, sought medical help at Sanhe Hospital in Huiyang in October, the doctor discovered a family of cockroaches living in his ear. 

According to media reports, the ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist revealed that in addition to the mother cockroach, there were around 10 baby cockroaches “running around”.

The specialist said: “He said his ear hurt a lot, like something was scratching or crawling inside. It caused a lot of discomfort.”

The newly-hatched insects, along with their mother, were removed with a pair of tweezers and were reported to be of the German species, Blattella germanica.

Lu was found to have sustained minor injuries to his ear canal and was discharged the same day with some ointment and cream.

As Lu admitted that he would often leave unfinished food near his bed, the specialist theorised that it could be the reason for the adult cockroach nesting in his ear because it could have “viewed the man’s ear as an incubation chamber and crawled inside”.

In order to avoid similar occurrences, the doctor advised practising good household hygiene, disinfecting drains and sewers, and using mosquito nets to prevent insects from flying into the home.

Much has been said about the Mate 30 lineup, Huawei’s latest but not-so-greatest flagship series that can’t run Google apps and services. 

Since its September launch in China and the dozens of reviews that have gone out since then, the general overview is this: the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro could have been the best smartphone on the market if not for the lack of a proper Android operating system. 

What we got is an excellent, specced-out device (that shoots really well!) painfully hampered by the lack of apps that everyone has come to rely on. The lack of feasible replacements on the Huawei AppGallery (Huawei’s own store) didn’t help. 

But even after all that jazz and razzmatazz, if you’re still interested in the Mate 30 series (at premium flagship prices of up to $1,298, no less), then by all means, head down to Huawei’s launch event at 313@Somerset this Saturday (Nov 16).

Huawei Mate 30 Series

It's time to celebrate!#HuaweiMate30 series finally arrives in Singapore with 500 premium bundle gifts for our esteemed users!The special sales launch event is available for ONE DAY only at 313@Somerset on 16 November from 10am onwards.

Posted by Huawei Mobile on Khamis, 7 November 2019

The one-day roadshow event is set to kick off at 10am at the mall’s atrium on the first floor.

It’s been just a little over a month since the Chinese tech giant held a private launch of the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro phones for a select audience of hardcore enthusiasts, and honestly, we’re surprised that there’s enough local demand for Huawei to merit a public launch. 

The question that remains right now (if you’re in the market for a brand new handset) is this: should you even bother? Personally, it’s a resounding no — a Google-less life is harder than you might realise. But! We’ll let you figure it out yourself via a list of pros and cons. 

The Good

  • It can take better pictures than the iPhone 11 Pro Max, according to the DXOMARK benchmark tests.
  • Huawei is sweetening the deal with a bundle of free gifts. Mate 30 buyers get a Huawei power bank, a phone case, and a wireless car charger, while those who bought the Pro edition get all the above plus a DJI Osmo smartphone gimbal for super-steady shots. 
  • It’s exclusive AF. You’ll be one of mere hundreds in the country who actually purchase and own a Mate 30 or Mate 30 Pro. Only 500 handsets will be up for grabs this Saturday. 
  • You’re a Huawei Mobile Services pioneer! In lieu of apps via Google Play, you can use the likes of Huawei’s own internet browsers, music and video players, themes, and digital assistant via the Huawei AppGallery. 
  • The edge-to-edge curved OLED screen on the Mate 30 Pro is gorgeous. 
  • The battery life is insane, with 4200 mAh on the Mate 30 and the 4500 mAh on the Pro. The capacity is big enough for you to charge other things using the phone, which can actually be done wirelessly. 
  • It’ll play well with other Huawei devices that you already have or are planning to buy, including the Huawei Watch GT and Huawei Band series, MediaPad tablets, and headphones.

The Bad

PHOTO: Facebook / Huawei
  • It can’t run Google Apps. So no Google Maps, Gmail, Google Drive, and the many other software that makes for a full Android experience. 
  • No Google Play means you can’t download other essential apps, including WhatsApp, Facebook or Instagram. 
  • Huawei AppGallery still has a long way to go to offer a diverse range of apps that customers outside of China will need.
  • There’s only one physical button on the phone — volume control is done through on-screen sliders. Which is weird, because that means you can’t control the volume when the display is switched off. 
  • It’s not secure. The Mate 30 Pro failed Google’s SafetyNet security test
  • Expensive for a phone that can’t even run Google apps and services.

School may be frustrating for students in many ways, especially when assignment deadlines and examinations push stress levels to a whole new level.

Very often, dealing with the pressure of academia can be a difficult thing to do. However, a group of Universiti Teknologi Petronas (UTP) students in Perak, Malaysia came up with a (literally) straining way of relieving their stress during the exam period.

The 27-second-long video was shared last week by Malaysian Twitter user (@_amrlhakim) with a meme-inspired caption that explores what boys are really doing when their girlfriends aren’t around. 

The clip shows the group of UTP students, whose identities remain unknown, playing an all-out game of tug of war barefooted along the dormitory hallway. 

In the game, the losing team on the right could be seen giving way to the other team on the left. 

The clip has since been viewed over 700,000 times, bringing much laughter into the dreary hearts of students.

Some have pointed out at how envious and amazed they are at how creative UTP students can be when it comes to having fun, while others were laughing at how hilarious one of the guys in the losing team was seen sliding across the hallway.

“Hey HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA you were sliding forward like a dumb kid.” PHOTO: Twitter/aminnazhar

Several users considered the stunt to be one of the reasons why being a dude is the best (questionable). At the same time, others were thoroughly amazed and had given it a try themselves.

It definitely wouldn’t hurt to have fun along the way. Or at the very least, make the best of one’s school life with impromptu shenanigans.

HONG KONG – Hong Kong police said on Monday (Nov 11) they are investigating reports that a man was set alight following a heated argument on a day of widespread protests across the city, as videos of the purported attack surfaced online.

Three videos were posted on messaging channels used by protesters showing a man in a green t-shirt arguing with people on a footbridge, reportedly in the northern district of Ma On Shan.

A masked man dressed in black then throws a liquid over the man and sets him ablaze as crowds scatter and the victim frantically tries to remove his t-shirt.

A spokeswoman for the Hospital Authority said a man with burns had been admitted to Prince Wales Hospital, the closest facility to Ma On Shan.

“He’s in critical condition,” the spokeswoman said.

A police spokeswoman told AFP that they had received a report on the incident and were investigating.

The videos have not been verified by AFP, but the footage was picked up by Chinese state media.

The Global Times tabloid uploaded one of the videos to Twitter, a social media platform banned on the mainland, with the caption: “Black-clad rioters in #HongKong set a resident on fire in Ma On Shan on Monday, Hong Kong police confirmed with the Global Times.”

“Black-clad rioters” is a phrase commonly used by Chinese media to describe pro-democracy protesters.

What sparked the argument is unclear, but the expletive-laden conversation shows the man in green criticising people sympathetic to Hong Kong’s democracy movement, and his opponents berating him.

At one point, the man in green can be heard saying, “none of you are Chinese”.

One of his opponents shouts, “Go back to the Greater Bay Area”, the name for a nearby region of the Chinese mainland across the border from Hong Kong.

Wajah terkini penipuan siber

November 12, 2019 | News | No Comments

MENCURI data peribadi pengguna banyak membabitkan maklumat perbankan dan kad kredit. Itu tujuan utama penipuan menerusi e-mel yang sering diterima pengguna.

Walaupun pelbagai pendedahan dilaksanakan sama ada daripada kerajaan mahupun badan bukan kerajaan (NGO), masih wujud mangsa penipuan dalam talian seperti ini.

Menerusi bahasa siber, penipuan jenis ini lebih dikenali sebagai penipuan ‘Phishing’ memandangkan kebanyakan pengguna mengetahui sesuatu e-mel yang diterima adalah bentuk penipuan.

Menjelaskan taktik penipuan baharu berkenaan, Pakar Keselamatan Siber Sophos, John Shier berkata, wajah terkini penipuan dalam talian adalah pihak tidak bertanggungjawab yang mengirim e-mel mirip bank kononnya mahu mengemas kini maklumat peribadi pengguna.

Beliau berkata, kebanyakan pengguna tertipu kerana berasakan e-mel yang diterima adalah sah daripada bank sedangkan ia ditiru pihak tertentu untuk mengelirukan mangsa.

PENIPUAN jenis ini tidak menyasarkan segelintir kumpulan saja sebaliknya e-mel berkenaan dihantar kepada pengguna dalam jumlah yang banyak

“Kebiasaannya, maklumat yang akan diminta adalah nombor kad kredit, nombor keselamatan kad, maklumat perbankan dan beberapa lagi data sensitif yang seharusnya menjadi rahsia pengguna.

“Wujud juga kes mangsa kehilangan beberapa akaun e-mel, akaun Facebook dan beberapa lagi akaun milik peribadi serta pihak terbabit akan memanipulasi maklumat yang ada untuk mengambil keuntungan mudah.

“Contoh, anda mempunyai akaun tertentu dengan mata ganjaran di dalamnya, pihak tertentu boleh mengambil akaun berkenaan dan menggunakan mata ganjaran itu untuk dijual kepada pihak ketiga atau keempat asalkan bermotifkan keuntungan,” katanya.

Menurutnya, penipuan jenis ini tidak menyasarkan segelintir kumpulan saja sebaliknya e-mel dikirim kepada pengguna dalam jumlah besar.

“Ia umpama memancing, kita berikan umpan terlebih dulu dan letakkan umpan pada hujung mata kail. Lalu, kita akan tarik perlahan-lahan untuk menarik perhatian ikan. Malangnya, masih ada ikan yang akan tertipu dengan umpan seperti itu.

PAKAR Keselamatan Siber Sophos, John Shier.

“Begitulah analogi kepada kes penipuan Phishing ini. Ia mirip kepada memancing pengguna untuk menyerahkan maklumat peribadi mereka walaupun dalam keadaan mereka sedar,” katanya.

Katanya, pengguna perlu lebih berhati-hati pada setiap masa terutama apabila menerima e-mel berkaitan maklumat peribadi.

Beliau berkata, kaedah terbaik adalah melakukan semakan terperinci sama ada e-mel berkenaan benar-benar daripada pihak yang sah atau sekadar penipuan.

“Tidak adil kalau kita katakan jangan terpedaya kerana wujud kes penipuan ini yang menerima e-mel hampir sempurna sehingga pengguna tidak dapat membezakan sama ada ia palsu atau sah.

“Jadi, langkah paling berkesan adalah sentiasa berhati-hati dan menyemak dengan pihak yang sah supaya kerugian dalam bentuk wang, akaun serta data peribadi dapat dielakkan,” katanya.

Menurutnya, penipuan dalam talian ini sering berubah-ubah mengikut kesesuaian masa dan pihak tidak bertanggungjawab ini bijak menggunakan setiap peluang yang ada untuk memperdayakan pengguna.
