KUALA LUMPUR: The man who offered a RM5mil bounty to assassinate Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim did it for fun, says Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Razarudin Husain.

He said that the investigation has been completed, and added that it showed that the 34-year-old suspect is believed to have just started using TikTok.

"He is believed to have done that for fun," said Razaruddin
