According to The Straits Times, the attacker approached Kamal during a photo-taking session, called out his name, and then pulled out the weapon from his pocket.

The assailant hit Kamal twice on the head, causing him to fall and hit his face on a table.

Despite being knocked down, Kamal asked his attacker, “Why did you hit me? What did I do?” However, the assailant continued the attack.

Kamal was rushed to Changi General Hospital, where he received four stitches. His wife, Uqasha Senrose, recounted in a teary post that the attacker used a weapon she described as a “chota” and hit Kamal repeatedly on his head, face, chest, and back.

She described the attacker as having a “sinister smile” and not seeming to care that the attack was in public.

Celebrity host Mr. Roslan Shah, who had invited the couple to the event, said that he saw many people exiting the hall and went back in to find Ms. Uqasha crying for help and a lot of blood on the floor.

As Ms. Uqasha tried to stop the bleeding with a cloth, members of the public prevented the attacker from leaving before the police arrived and arrested him.

Mr. Roslan, a Singaporean based in Malaysia for more than 22 years for work, has brought in several Malaysian actors and singers for events like the Hari Raya Mega Sale. He said that this was the first time such an incident had happened.

Previously, some celebrities would choose to bring their bodyguards, but as this was a joyous Hari Raya event, Kamal and Uqasha opted not to have one.

They did not expect this to happen.

The police have seized the baton as a case exhibit, and investigations are ongoing.

If convicted, the attacker could face up to seven years in jail, a fine, or caning.

The incident has shocked fans and the entertainment industry in Malaysia and Singapore, and many have expressed their concern and support for Kamal and Uqasha.
