KUALA LUMPUR: Another individual believed to be involved in militant activities has been detained in the federal capital, bringing to 11 the number of people arrested so far.
Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the suspect was arrested while attempting to flee the country on Thursday.
“We are tracking down the remnants of the group found in the Royal Malaysia Police’s (PDRM) list,” he told a media conference here yesterday.
On April 28, nine individuals – aged between 22 and 55 – believed to be involved in militant activities, were arrested by the Counter Terrorism Division, Special Branch, Bukit Aman police.
Three of them were arrested in Kedah and six in Selangor. The following day, another individual was arrested in Kuala Lumpur.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar, when contacted, confirmed the arrest of an individual for allegedly being involved in militant activities, but declined to elaborate.
Ahmad Zahid said the government would not allow Malaysia to be used as a “launching pad” for terrorists and the police would be firm in their action.
Questioned whether there was any militant group which used a political party as a cover in the country, Ahmad Zahid said there was none so far. — Bernama
