Authorities have found the body of the man who died trying to save a family of 5

Feb 10, 2019


Abdul Bari Asyraf's body was found in Sungai Terengganu this morning. 

He was fishing with friends when he saw a car plunge into the river and jumped in to save the family, but is believed to have suffered cramps while retrieving one of the victims, and drowned.

The 5 people in the car were rescued by other passersby.

The Housing and Local Government Minister has become the latest big name to be dragged into the degree scandal.

The media had earlier claimed Zuraida Kamaruddin graduated from the National University of Singapore, but a Twitter user said he couldn't find Zuraida's name on the NUS online portal. 

The minister has since clarified she never claimed to have graduated from NUS and never authorised anyone to make the claim. 

This comes after the Deputy Foreign Minister was accused of receiving his degree from a degree mill.
