PETALING JAYA: An object resembling a mortar shell has been found at the Customs Department living complex here.  

The object was found in a water meter room by a resident on Friday morning, prompting police to dispatch a bomb squad to the Kelana Jaya complex to assess the situation.  

An evacuation order is believed to have been ordered as a precautionary measure.  

The bomb squad later removed the object from the location.  

District OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zani Che Din said investigations are ongoing, adding that authorities have yet to determine if the object is real or fake.  

A mortar is defined as a short, smoothbore gun designed to fire shells at high angles.
