"Surely the incident has traumatised Mohd Hasif and he also received counselling during his stay at the hospital and, if necessary, he will undergo further counselling.

"He is in stable condition and can walk without having to use a walking stick... (however), he will receive regular treatment over the next two months,” he told reporters during the handing over of state government contributions to the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) of Johor at the Johor Police Contingent headquarters here today.
