KUALA PERLIS: The Border Security Agency (Aksem) in Perlis found a temporary shelter and two tunnels believed to have been used by treasure hunters and to carry out immoral activities at the foothills of Bukit Putih, Kampung Wai.

Perlis police chief Datuk Surina Saad said the first tunnel was about 6m-long while the second tunnel was incomplete.

“We believe the tunnels were dug to look for valuables and gold.

“The temporary settlement had facilities such as wells, iron pipes, a small hut and items such as crockery which showed the presence of women, ” she said, adding that she did not rule out the possibility that the tunnels were dug by experienced people. — Bernama
