The photographer and lawyer involved in a brief scuffle at the Shah Alam High Court before the Cradle Fund CEO murder hearing have made peace despite lodging police reports.
Utusan Malaysia photographer Zulfadhli Zaki said a police report was lodged at the Shah Alam Section 9 district police headquarters against lawyer S Suresh after the scuffle on Tuesday (June 21) morning.
Zulfadhli said he and Suresh made peace when they met at the police station.
“I bumped into him at the police station while lodging the report. So, we cleared the air,” said Zulfadhli.
He said the scuffle was triggered because Suresh had grabbed his media tag containing personal information such as his MyKad number, which was attached to a lanyard around his neck.
“He pushed my camera and I had to prevent it from falling. After that he grabbed my media tag and I thought he was going to attack my camera again,” said Zulfadhli.
“I forgive him and he forgives me. I don’t want this to be prolonged but a police report has already been lodged and I’m on my way to meet the IO (investigating officer),” he said.
In a video, Suresh is seen pushing and shoving media personnel away before emotions ran high and he was hit on the head with a camera.
Later on, expletives were hurled as some photographers split up the fight.
