Bangsar, Solaris, Bukit Bintang targeted by terror groups

PUTRAJAYA: The Federal Territories Ministry will step up security measures to ensure the safety of the public in shopping malls, popular tourist spots and places of large gathering in Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Labuan.

Its minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said the enforcement teams under the ministry would work together with the police, as part of the efforts in beefing up security.

“The threats are there and we are very well aware of this, so we are on standby for any possible event.

“Among the places that they are targeting includes KL city, Bukit Bintang, Publika, Solaris, Hartamas, Bangsar and The Curve.

“We will also consider engaging the help of Defence Ministry to secure popular tourist and leisure hotspots if the need arises,” he said after kicking off the FT flag campaign in conjunction with the upcoming FT Day celebration on Feb 1, here, today.

He said the motive of this group is to destabilise popular tourist countries and create fear?, similar to the recent attack in Indonesian capital, Jakarta.

In this manner, Tengku Adnan urged the public to come forward with any information or suspicion on any form of militant activities.-nst
