Meanwhile, Ramli Mohd Nor (BN-Cameron Highlands), who is the first Orang Asli MP in the country, will raise the question on the sudden death involving Orang Asli from the Batek tribe in Kuala Koh, Gua Musang, Kelantan,

He is expected to ask the Home Minister on whether the police had opened an investigation paper on sudden death report (SDR) as it was indeed an unusual incident involving more than 10 deaths.
