Forced to dispel rumours of own death.
Former Padang Serai MP N Surendran has denied rumours of his death, saying that he is very much alive and well.
“I am thus put in the highly unusual position of denying my own death. I am perfectly well and alive, and have been in my law firm working all morning,” he said in a statement that was issued to prevent alarm or concern over the rumours.
“I have no information whatsoever as to how these reports began or the reason for it,” he added.
The senior lawyer said he and his friends had been inundated with calls enquiring about the ‘news’ this morning.
The purported news allegedly claimed that Surendran had been found dead at home.
