JOHOR BARU: A woman who was accused of being the scantily dressed lady seen in a viral photo with a policeman in Segamat has come out to defend herself after receiving several messages from friends.
The @bebyluerena Instagram (pic) handler posted the photo her account with caption denying that the girl in the picture was herself.
“Many friends have messaged me on social media asking if it was me but it is not,” she wrote in the post, which has garnered 5,578 likes as of 5pm on Tuesday.
The woman’s long hair and slender body looked similar to the girl that was featured in the photo, sparking a hullabaloo that it could have been the same person.
In another post, the girl, who has over 27,000 followers on Instagram, claimed that she was in Kuala Lumpur when the picture was taken on Oct 8.
“On that date, I was in Kuala Lumpur after accompanying my mother for a course in Bangi, Selangor and as I have said, she is not the same person,” she said.
Earlier, Johor police chief Comm Datuk Mohd Khalil Kader Mohd said the policeman has been removed from the unit with immediate effect.
