Police checked his background and alibi and have determined that he was not the man they were looking for, said city CID Chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Ku Chin Wah on Sunday. The man came in after his brother saw the photofit and advised him to clear his name with the police. No new case of acid splashing has been reported since the last one on Friday, he said. ___________________________________________________________________________ *edit* Sorry to depress you guys this weekend but I felt compelled to share this info Anita Sharma sent me on the serial acid splasher: All of us must be on our toes from now onwards. We must work hand-in-hand to track down this animal. This serial acid splasher is of dark complexion and he rides either a Honda EX5 or Yamaha bike with a basket in front. So you should be more careful when you see these 2 types of bike approaching you. If you are a woman, a girl….or well just about anyone who is staying in KL-you might want to follow the following guidelines here: Always walk facing against the traffic: So that the serial acid splasher will not attack you from the back. Besides that by walking against the traffic you will have a better chance of avoiding anyone who looks suspicious to you. Avoid walking by the side of the road: If possible don’t walk at the side of the road at all if it is unnecessary. You will be exposed and make yourself easy target for this serial acid splasher. Walk near the building where there are crowded people. Always bring along an umbrella: This might sound crazy…but I suggest that you bring along a huge umbrella with you. So whenever you see someone suspicious approaching you, immediately open that umbrella to shield yourself from any possible attack. Yes! Just open it even though it is not raining. Best of all use the umbrella all the time. Moreover your umbrella can be a potent weapon for you to defend yourself in dangerous situations. Inform the police of any suspicious motorcyclist: Banking on our lazy and inefficient Malaysian police alone is not enough. So the moment you see anyone riding a bike with dark complexion and looks suspicious…immediately take down the number plate and inform the police to come over as soon as possible. Who knows? Your information might lead to the nabbing of this serial acid splasher! Put on more clothes: I know the weather is scorching hot right now. But putting on an extra jacket or vest might buy you some time to escape the devastating acid if *touch wood* you are being splashed! Don’t go out at all: No matter where you go, try not to walk…at all. If possible don’t even go out if you don’t have any transport, preferably car. It doesn’t matter if the sundry shop is only 50 metres away from your home…you don’t want to risk being splashed with acid right? So ask your parents, husband or other family members to ferry you around if you can. Use as much water as possible: Water is the best remedy to counter the corrosive acid. The moment someone is being splashed with acid (either it is you or other victims), pour as much water as possible onto the affected body parts especially the eyes. Keep on pouring a large amount of water to dilute the acid. Keep on doing this until the acid has been diluted and washed away. So I suggest all of us to bring a water bottle all the time.
