Information chief Haryaty Hamdzah said the reports were lodged at the Dang Wangi police station today over the claim which was posted on an Opposition’s news portal.

“The statement is extreme, it tarnishes the party’s image and the people’s confidence in the party. It affects the image of young women, especially those in Puteri Umno,” she told reporters after lodging one of the reports.

The other report was lodged by Klang Puteri Umno leader Norhaslindawati Bujang.
