Police have picked up another 10 individuals involved in the Sri Maha Mariamman temple riot on Monday, bringing to 58 the total number of people arrested in connection with the case so far.
Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said police were still tracing more individuals involved in the incident.
He said more than 5,000 reports had been lodged over the incident nationwide, with 1,800 lodged in Selangor alone.
“The police will look into all the reports. The latest is 58 individuals have been arrested so far. They include 38 Malays, 18 Indians and two Chinese,” he told reporters after visiting the temple at Seafield USJ 25 today.
Muhyiddin said police would continue monitoring the site round the clock to ensure no more untoward incidents happened there.
He also condemned those who continued to issue seditious and inflamatory statements regarding what had happened.
