PETALING JAYA: The two suspicious objects found underneath lawyer-activist Siti Kasim’s car are believed to be an improvised explosive device (IED), say cops.
Brickfields police chief Amihizam Abdul Shukor said the area in Jalan Maarof, Bangsar was immediately cordoned off after Siti called the cops over the matter while a bomb squad and personnel from the fire and rescue department were also present at the scene.
“The two plastic bottles placed near the rear tyres are believed to be a type of IED,” he said, according to Kosmo.
Amihizam said the objects were safely extracted from the vehicle and had been taken to the forensics unit for further analysis.
Earlier, Siti said she was alerted to two suspicious objects underneath her car after she sent it to a workshop in Kuala Lumpur.
She posted a video on Facebook of what looked like plastic water bottles that were attached to the suspension of her car. She said: “It looks like a bomb”.
A bomb squad arrived at about 3pm. Siti has since lodged a police report.
