Popular M'sian actress detained for committing khalwat

A well-known film actress, 33, was detained by a religious department team for allegedly committing khalwat (being in close proximity) with a man at a condominum in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday night (Dec 14).

The raid was conducted following a tip-off, reported Harian Metro .

A source said that the couple had failed to produce documents proving their marriage and was detained.  

"After receiving information from the public, we immediately sent our officers to the location. When we were at the scene, we arrested them for khalwat," he said.

It is believed that the unnamed actress' boyfriend is not an artiste and that both are planning to tie the knot soon.

The actress, who is also a widow, is believed to have three children.  

A police spokesman said further investigations will be handled by the Selangor Islamic Religious Department.
