IPOH - Police are investigating reports of a "half-naked" couple walking about near a bank here in broad daylight along Jalan Sultan Yussuf here.
Ipoh District Acting Police Chief Supt Ahmad Termizi Abdul Haq said a police team was despatched to the area after the department received photographs of the couple through the mobile messaging WhatsApp. However, when they arrived at the location, the couple, believed to be models, had already left.
"An order has been issued to the station police chief and members that if they come across any immoral and indecent behaviour, they should advise or take action to stop it," Supt Ahmad Termizi said, here, Monday.
However, to date, police had not received any reports of the incident, he added.
He said the incident was being investigated under Section 41 of the Minor Offences Act 1955 for indecent behaviour.
Supt Ahmad Termizi reminded the public not to behave indecently in public places as it was an offence under the same Act.
The couple drew public attention and their photographs caused a stir on social media.
The female model was reportedly wearing a white bikini and a veil while the man was clad in long black pants without a shirt.
The models were with a crew and believed to be on a wedding photography session at the location.
