Cops probe whether incidents involving important national institutions are random or planned acts — Saifuddin

PUTRAJAYA — Police are investigating whether several recent incidents involving the security of important national institutions and Members of Parliament are random acts or part of a coordinated plan.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said police and the Ministry of Home Affairs (KDN) took a serious view of the issue and are closely monitoring the situation to prevent any further incidents.

“It is crucial for the police investigation to determine (whether the attacks) are random acts or part of a coordinated plan and (if they are) carried out by individuals or groups,” he told a media conference at the launch of the new Film Censorship Guidelines here today.

On Friday (May 17), two policemen — Constable Ahmad Azza Fahmi Azhar and Constable Muhamad Syafiq Ahmad Said — were killed while another was injured after they were attacked by an intruder at the Ulu Tiram police station in Johor.

On the same day, two men aged 29 and 37, were arrested for allegedly trying to trespass into Istana Negara in a Perodua Kembara car. — BERNAMA
