PETALING JAYA: The dragnet has widened with the arrest of five more teachers in Negri Sembilan and Johor over the leaked UPSR papers.

This brings to 12 the number of suspects detained.

Kuala Lumpur CID chief Senior Asst Comm Gan Kong Meng said three teachers were picked up in Serem­ban, Labu and Mantin between 9pm on Tuesday and 12.15am yesterday.

He said the teachers were aged 24, 34 and 36 and one was a woman.

“We also seized communication tools from the teachers,” he said.

Later yesterday evening, two more teachers were picked up by the police, he added.

A 26-year-old female teacher was arrested at 7pm in Labis, Johor, and a 31-year-old male teacher was held at 7.30pm in Nilai, Negri Sembi­lan.

He said they would be remand­­ed until Saturday to facilitate investigations into the incident.

“We have recorded the statements from Examinations Syndicate officers, an insurance agent, an engineer, a journalist and teachers.

“As investigations are still ongoing, we hope people will refrain from speculating,” SAC Gan said.
