I AM concerned that a man who appears to be mentally unsound has been wandering around the Serusop, Batu Bersurat and Gadong areas, and asking for money and disturbing customers at restaurants.
The man was even seen urinating in front of one of the restaurants.
I have seen the beggar being scolded by the restaurant owners. Some sympathetic customers have advised the beggar to use wisely the cash given to him and not to disturb people at the eateries.
One restaurant owner even asked me not to give cash to the beggar for fear that he would come back and ask for more money.
Can the relevant authority at a ministry or department look into this worrying issue?
I suspect that the man is sent by some individuals to these areas to beg for money on a daily basis.
