NIBONG TEBAL (Bernama) – Police have identified a man believed to have placed a package containing four bombs in the compound of a house in Jalan Badak Mati, Sungai Bakap here in Saturday.
Seberang Perai Selatan (SPS) police chief Supt Wan Hassan Wan Ahmad said the image of a man who placed the package was captured by the closed-circuit television (CCTV) at a shop near the location.
“Efforts to track down the man were being carried out and at the moment we believe the bombs were homemade.
“Police also found several new clues including the fingerprint of the suspect involved,” he told reporters after an integrated crime prevention operation by Penang police in Seberang Perai Selatan yesterday.
Three of the bombs were detonated by the Bomb Disposal Unit while another bomb was sent to Penang police contingent for investigation.
