KUANTAN: On social media, there has been a rumour spreading that a mysterious small creature with a human-like face has been found in the forests of Pahang, stirring up fear and anxiety.

State police chief Datuk Rosli Abdul Rahman said the images circulating of the ‘strange creature’ were untrue.

In fact, he said, the pictures were believed to be taken from the Internet. He also said police have not received any tangible evidence of the creature in the form of messages or reports. Images of the creature have gone viral on social media since 13 October.

“Checks revealed the images were downloaded from the Internet before it was shared on social media, claiming that the discovery was made in Pahang. I hope the public will stop circulating news about the alleged discovery,” he said upon being contacted.
