The Inspector-General of Police said the matter is being investigated, adding that the number of police reports may increase.
"All of the reports are about the chemical dumping, and we are investigating it," he said when met after visiting the medic base at the Pasir Gudang Indoor Stadium here on Sunday (March 17).
Mohamad Fuzi said police have been proactive and have several strong leads that could lead to the suspects involved in the chemical dumping.
He also said that police have deployed about 150 personnel within the chemical-hit area to safeguard houses that have been left behind by owners due to the disaster.
"We have about three platoons here and nine roadblocks have been set up. I hope people will adhere to police instructions when entering the area.
"We will not allow lorries or heavy vehicles that have nothing to do with the disaster relief efforts to enter the area," Mohamad Fuzi said.
