Bag that was left unattended causes panic in KL Sentral


KUALA LUMPUR --- A bag that was left unattended, suspected to contain explosives created panic among commuters at Kuala Lumpur Sentral on Saturday night.

However, upon inspection, Kuala Lumpur CID chief SAC Datuk Zainuddin Ahmad confirmed there was no cause for concern.

He said the bag, which was left unsupervised at the entrance of a fast food restaurant in the building only contained clothes.

"Checks by our Bomb Disposal Unit and two dogs from the K9 unit failed to detect any explosives in the bag.

"We only found clothes and a mobile phone charger," Zainuddin said adding that the police were alerted about the bag at about 9.12pm.

Last month, Dang Wangi police chief ACP Zainol Samah advised the public not to leave their bags or parcels unattended as it may cause unnecessary alarm.

Zainol said that bags left unattended in public places such as malls may cause suspicion and panic.

He said the public should be aware of this due to fears of militant attacks recently in other countries. Often police are summoned to ensure the bags or parcels are not a threat. This is time consuming and may cause chaos.

Militant bombers are typically known to launch armed attacks by leaving knapsacks and luggage loaded with explosives at their targeted places before remotely blowing it up.

Beginning of the year, two Korean female tourists caused a stir at the Pavilion shopping mall at Jalan Bukit Bintang when they left their bags at a public area and went shopping.
