KK Mart firebombing: Police record statements from four individuals

KUANTAN, April 2 — The Pahang police have recorded statements from four individuals to assist in the investigation of a Molotov cocktail thrown at the KK Mart branch in Sungai Isap on Saturday (March 30).

State police chief Datuk Seri Yahaya Othman said the four consisted of witnesses, including the complainant, and the investigation to identify the suspects involved is still ongoing.

The police will obtain closed-circuit television camera footage from the area near the scene of the incident to assist the investigation.

“I have asked the mobile patrol vehicle (MPV) and motorcycle patrol unit (URB) to increase patrols at other KK Mart branches, and in Pahang, there are 15 KK branches and two storage facilities,” he said.

Yahaya was speaking to the press today during the crime prevention programme at the Mahkota Square Ramadan bazaar.

He also advised all parties to remain calm, not take action arbitrarily, and always obey the law.

On March 30, the KK Mart branch in Sg Isap was attacked with a petrol bomb by an unknown individual, damaging four shelves and some sales items in the process.
