"We are investigating the case under Section 420 of the Penal Code for cheating. Of course we will be calling the organiser as well," he told The Star on Friday (July 8).
"We will be recording statements from them and the victims as well," he said when contacted.
He added that the majority of those left stranded at the airport had since returned home.
Early on Friday morning, 380 haj pilgrims were left stranded at KLIA after allegedly being cheated by a travel agency.
The group were said to have been issued the furada, or private haj visa issued by Saudi Arabia, to perform their pilgrimage without going through Lembaga Tabung Haji.
