“The suspect came alone and surrendered. We sent him to the Dang Wangi District Police headquarters for a statement to be recorded,” ACP Mohan confirmed.
A direct-selling dealer who claims to own the controversial Facebook account ran under the name of Murugan Nagaretinam posted the IGP’s picture with a caption: “Can anyone just hire gunman to shoot down this police or IGP?”
The Facebook account owner with controversial content belongs to Negeri Sembilan but was living in Melaka. The man has no criminal record, ACP Mohan confirmed. Police has taken him to the Dang Wangi station to have his statement recorded.
“He will be remanded at the Dang Wangi station for four days for further questioning,” said Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Zainuddin Ahmad.
