Mas Imran also said Econsave was giving the holders of the two Facebook accounts 48 hours to retract the false statements which had gone viral on social media and apologise for them.

Meanwhile Johor Bahru Utara District Police Chief ACP Mohd Taib Ahmad, when contacted, confirmed the police report had been made.
