Cops still probing bomb found under Siti Kasim's car


KUALA LUMPUR: The police probe into a bomb found underneath lawyer Siti Kasim's car is still ongoing, says Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail (pic).

He said police initiated an investigation under Section 7 of the Explosives Act and are looking for the perpetrators as well as finding out the motive behind the incident.

"The investigation paper has been referred to the Deputy Public Prosecutor's office and the probe is still underway.

"Since the case is still pending, the police will not comment further," he said in a written reply to Sim Tze Sin (PH-Bayan Baru) on Tuesday (Nov 14).

Sim had earlier asked for updates on the investigation into the improvised explosive device (IED) that was fixed underneath Siti Kasim's vehicle.

Saifuddin also revealed that as of October, a total of 17 investigations on threats involving explosives have been carried out.

"Every Malaysian, regardless of their status or career, is protected under the law," he added.

In July, a mechanic at a workshop where Siti's car was being serviced discovered a suspicious object attached to the car's undercarriage.

Police had to deploy its bomb disposal unit to remove it.

Police confirmed that the explosive device was real but not switched on.
