KUALA LUMPUR: Investigations are underway to identify suspects who launched fireworks at a police post in Padang Besar, Perlis.

“Investigations are underway, and at this point of time, we can’t say if the attack was done by Thai suspects or not.

“What we are sure of was that the fireworks were aimed at the police post at the border there. Give us time to conduct our investigations, ” said Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Mazlan Mansor, after officiating the launch of the online application website for new police hires at Bukit Aman on Tuesday (Oct 29).

On Monday (Oct 28), four “rockets” were launched from the gate of the border towards the police post, resulting in a broken window.

No injuries were reported.
