KUANTAN: The police have warned the public that sheltering the suspect involved in the murder of Ambank operations officer Norazita Abu Talib is an offence, and those who know of his whereabouts should convey it to the authorities immediately.
Deputy IGP Datuk Seri Mohd Bakri Mohd Zinin reminded the public that any act of harbouring the suspect was an offence and warned that the man could be dangerous.
"The suspect is a dangerous person and could harm the public.
"He is armed and it is an offence to harbour the suspect," Mohd Bakri said after he officiated the 86th general assembly of the Senior and Branches Officers Associations Centre, here Tuesday.
Mohd Bakri said if the public noticed any of strangers in their villages or residential areas that looked suspicious, they should inform the police immediately.
Mohd Bakri also said there was no immediate need to get the assistance from the International Police to hunt for the suspect.
"Currently, our task force has linked with all police contingents nationwide, including those manning border crossings, so the suspect will not slip out to neighbouring countries," he said.
Meanwhile, Bernama reported that 11 people have been detained so far in connection with the killing, the latest one in Johor on Sunday.
Ten of them were picked up last week.
Selangor CID chief SAC Mohd Adnan Abdullah said the six men and five women, aged between 24 and 44, were detained to assist in establishing the guard’s whereabouts.
The guard shot dead bank officer Norazita Abu Talib, 37, after she had opened the strongroom of an AmBank branch in Subang Jaya on Oct 24 and fled with about RM450,000 from the vault.
