Police, hospital probe viral clip of man stepping on Deepavali ‘kholam’


A video clip has been making the rounds on social media showing a man allegedly vandalising a Deepavali ‘kholam’.

PETALING JAYA: Police and a private hospital in Klang have launched an investigation into a viral video which shows a man, allegedly a member of the hospital staff, stepping on a “kholam” floor decoration marking Deepavali.

Klang Utara police chief S Vijaya Rao said the man will be called to give his statement about the video clip. He said police had received a report on the incident and the case was being investigated for causing disharmony by insulting religion.

KPJ Klang Specialist Hospital said it has started an internal investigation into the video and promised stern action against its staff if they were involved.

“We have been made aware that a video allegedly depicting one of our staff conducting unprofessional behaviour is making its rounds on social media.
