Attacked in Front of His Fans
The incident happened when the 37-year-old actor and Senrose, made an appearance appeared at Singapore Expo Hall 5A's Hari Raya Mega Sale 2023 on its final day. According to Senrose, 30, they were taking pictures with an aunt who was in a wheelchair at around 9 o'clock, according to the Malay news source Berita Harian.

"Blood was pouring out. Kamal was badly hurt. I saw Kamal wake up because he wanted to know who attacked him," Uqasha said.
Police have since arrested the attacker after several visitors and stall operators tackled him and stopped him fleeing the scene.
"Everyone there chased and stopped the man. They were puzzled and angry as to why Kamal was the victim of his attack," Uqasha told the outlet.
Prayers for Adli
Senrose expressed gratitude to all who helped and thanked them for saving her husband's life as his memory was not affected. "Please pray for Kamal, he was attacked with a baton after our Hari Raya Mega Sale event in Singapore.
