ALOR SETAR: More than 100 screws have been found strewn at the Darul Aman Stadium car park ahead of a gathering by supporters of Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir.

The embattled Kedah Mentri Besar's supporters are expected to gather at the stadium on Monday night.

The screws measuring about three inches long each were found at the car park, which is capable of accommodating more than 50 vehicles.

A stadium employee, who only wished to be known as Zali, 35, collected the screws and placed them in a plastic bag.

"In half an hour, I managed to collect more than a hundred screws," he said.

Several night market traders helped Zali collect them.

A check by The Star at the venue also discovered a banner supporting Mukhriz hung between two trees in the car park.

However, a strong gust of wind tore the banner down, leaving it dangling from a tree.

Several Rela members who were on standby at the scene said they saw some banners along the roads around the stadium, but most were not securely tied.

"Some were already dangling and endangering the safety of motorists. 

"So some motorists decided that it was better for the banners to be removed, which they did by themselves," said an officer who declined to be named.
