Deputy Home Minister Datuk Mohd Azis Jamman (pic) said police have found something as they probed those who caused the 24-year-old fireman to suffer broken ribs and other internal injuries when he and his team were responding to a fire at the Seafield Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in USJ 25.
"We have something which we will need to investigate. If it is true, we will take stern action on the perpetrators regardless of who they are," he said after visiting Muhammad Adib at the Ramsay Sime Darby Healthcare centre here.
Mohd Azis also warned the public to not make baseless statements about the incident otherwise action will be taken against them.
He also said the police had done their best to control the situation on the ground.
"If the police had not done their best, worst things could have happened last night.
"But because of their efficiency, residents there could sleep better," he said.
However, he regretted the misfortune that befell Muhammad Adib saying that the culprits had gone overboard.
Early Tuesday morning, Muhammad Adib and his eight other team mates were responding to a fire at the temple grounds where rioters were protesting its relocation.
It is believed the mob had dragged him out of the vehicle and stomped on him.
A member of the public later took him to hospital.
