Police still clueless about miscreants

Penang police have checked 133 printing premises in the state in its bid to trace the origin of provocative banners displayed outside several churches, which was followed by a petrol bomb attack on a church compound in George Town last week.

Chief Police Officer Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi said yesterday that the police had received 36 reports and recorded 23 statements in connection with the investigation.

"I hope all quarters will remain calm and exercise patience. Let the police resolve this matter," he told reporters in Nibong Tebal when asked about progress in the police investigation into the hurling of two Molotov cocktails into a church compound at Lebuh Farquhar in George Town on January 27.

Abdul Rahim said police have not made any arrests so far. "There is no CCTV camera in the compound of the church. The police are conducting the probe by looking at the recording of CCTV cameras around the area. We are having difficulty identifying the suspects because they were wearing crash helmets," he said.

Earlier, Abdul Rahim accompanied Internal Security and Public Order director Datuk Seri Salleh Md Rashid to monitor the cameras at traffic safety operation in Sungai Bakap.
