Kuala Lumpur, August 8: Terrorism is one of the biggest threat to the whole world. Therefore, in one of the biggest counter-terrorism operation, Malaysian security forces have arrested over 400 suspected people in a series of raids in the capital Kuala Lumpur.

 

Notably, with an aim to curb terrorism from the country, Malaysian security forces arrested over 400 suspected people in a series of raids in the capital Kuala Lumpur. Those held in a series of raids in the capital Kuala Lumpur were mainly from Bangladesh, India and Pakistan. Machines to make fake passports and to forge Malaysian immigration documents were among the items seized.

Meanwhile, security in Kula Lumpur is being tightened up ahead of the Southeast Asian Games which will begin in just over a week's time. However, yesterday’s raids saw police break down doors and lead scores of people away in handcuffs to waiting buses. They were taken to police stations for investigation and screening. Authorities said they were targeting anyone with missing or fraudulent travel documents or who was believed to be affiliated with terror groups in Syria and Iraq.

The police counter-terror official Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay said, "We will detect and take action against foreigners suspected of having links with terrorists, especially those involved in activities in Syria.” “Officers were also equipped with devices to detect radioactive materials, Ayob Khan added, although no such items were found.”
