"Checks revealed the email used the same address that was used several years back. We believe the individual is the same and the account used is fake.

"We are in the midst of identifying the email sender and will announce any developments later,” he told reporters when asked about the bomb threats to several government premises in the state.

He was speaking to the media after visiting personnel on duty for Ops Selamat at Jalan Lingkaran Dalam here Monday night.

Comm Kumar said the emails sent were hoaxes aimed at causing tension and concern among the public.
