SUBANG JAYA: 392 police personnel have moved in to secure the Seafield Sri Maha Mariamman Temple and One City business complex in USJ 25.

The 392 include normal uniformed police, plainclothes policemen and Federal Reserve Unit (FRU) detachments

A drive past One City complex saw several FRU vehicles parked at the business complex.

According to police personnel at the temple, three checkpoints have been set up on the roads turning into USJ 25, although one is deactivated currently to ensure smooth traffic flow.

Police personnel said they had moved in at midnight soon after news broke of firefighter Muhammad Adib Kassim's passing.

Muhammad Adib had been critically injured a month ago during a riot at the Seafield temple on  Nov 27 following an attack on the temple by masked assailants on Nov 26.

The temple appeared  quiet, even deserted with only the police and a few media personnel observing the scene, although the temple priests were around earlier to conduct prayers.

The police had withdrawn their presence from the temple and One City complex on Dec 6 after things had calmed down.
