KUALA LUMPUR: Nine witnesses have been called by the police as the probe into the improvised explosive devices (IED) planted on lawyer Siti Kasim's car continues.

"The police have called nine witnesses to record their statements. CCTV footage has also been obtained.

"We are going through each CCTV recording from places that the victim had informed us of and investigations are still ongoing," City police chief Comm Datuk Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain told the media on Monday (July 24) in a text message.

Earlier on Monday (July 24), Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Razarudin Husain was quoted by a Malay news portal as saying that the incident was suspected to be attempted murder.

"The discovery of the bomb shows that it is a serious crime and the threat is akin to an attempted murder," he told Harian Metro.

On July 21, the lawyer discovered the now-confirmed explosives underneath her car as it was being serviced in a workshop in Bangsar.

The police Bomb Squad was dispatched to safely remove the IED, and Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Amihizam Abdul Shukor told reporters at the scene there that it would be sent in for further analysis.
