IGP: 15 wanted Thai militants might try to sneak into Malaysia

JELI (Bernama): The police are not ruling out the possibility that 15 men who are wanted by the Thai police after a deadly attack in southern Thai last Thursday will attempt to sneak across the border to Malaysia.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador said, the police and the Armed Forces (ATM) have enhanced security control at all Malaysia-Thailand borders.

"Both PDRM and ATM are constantly reminded to strengthen the border control... with what happened in Thailand, we do not rule out the possibilities that they might attempt to sneak in.

He said this at a press conference after visiting the new Jeli district police headquarters construction site here, on Saturday (Feb 27), together with Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Economy) Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed and Kelantan police chief Datuk Shafien Mamat.

Abdul Hamid was commenting on the bomb explosion and shooting incident at a village in Ra-ngae, Narathiwat last Thursday which killed two rangers while another was hurt.

Ra-ngae police chief Piyapak Thongpanlertkun said initial investigations found that the attackers consisted of at least 15 men. – Bernama
