The Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) yesterday confirmed a report from the Tutong Police Station on an Indonesian national who is being tracked down by a law enforcement agency but denied viral information that the man escaped from police remand at the Tutong Police Station.

In a statement yesterday, the RBPF said the information shared on social media was not issued by the police.

It informed that police are ramping up efforts to assist in tracking the individual and requested the public to inform the police if they come across any individual acting suspiciously.
