PUTRAJAYA: Former federal territories minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor has been arrested by anti-graft officials following multiple interrogations over dubious land deals involving the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).
The Putrajaya MP was arrested at 3.25pm after arriving at the MACC headquarters here for further questioning.
A source told FMT that Tengku Adnan could be charged with accepting bribes, but it is unclear how many charges will be framed against him.
Tengku Adnan, 67, previously denied any involvement in the approval of land deals between DBKL and private developers, saying he had handed the land back to Putrajaya.
A special task force was set up to probe 97 transactions worth RM5.63 billion involving 273.27ha of DBKL land.
Fourteen deals were terminated while 15 others were renegotiated, resulting in additional revenue of RM49 million for DBKL.
