KUALA LUMPUR — Dec. 3, 2018: Police is tracking down 28 people regarding the rioting at and outside the USJ 25 Sri Maha Mariamman Temple early last week.
Those with information are asked to contact Selangor CID chief SAC Fadzil Ahmat at 019-6000903 or Subang Jaya district CID chief DSP G. Shan Gopal at 019-2714387 or any police station.
The rioting occurred in the early hours of Monday and Tuesday last week following a dispute over the relocation of the temple, causing a firefighter Muhammad Adib Mohd. Kassim to be critically injured and being treated at the National Heart Institute.
A policeman also sustained injuries, while 23 vehicles were torched. Selangor police chief Datuk Mazlan Mansor said police has also recorded the statement of a colleague of Adib.
Mazlan also said that blogger Papagomo or Wan Muhammad Azri Wan Deris was released on police bail today after a court rejected an application to extend his remand period.
Azri was detained relating to a video clip on the rioting that was deemed to be sensitive and could fuel racial sentiments. — Bernama
