Maldives Police Service has urged not to share alleged photos of Shiau Mohamed’s body, who was found brutally murdered in the capital city.
The mutilated body of Shiau was found in an apartment on the 9th floor of Henveiru Sheereenvilla on the 7th of August.
While the alleged photos of her body are being circulated around social media, Police noted that it does not seem that the photos have been leaked from within the authority. As such, they added that these photos were not taken for the purpose of the investigation and neither of the photos in question are being used by the Police.
However, they assured that an investigation will be carried out to determine whether the leak came from the Police or not.
Noting that the images depict extreme gore and brutality and could impact those who see them, Police advised not to circulate them to each other through various platforms.
