SUBANG JAYA: A team of police investigators today reenacted the incident in which a fireman was severely injured in the riot outside the Seafield Sri Maha Mariamman temple in USJ 25, here, as part of their investigations.

The team which arrived at the scene at 12 noon, comprised police investigating officers, Forensic Unit as well as officers and personnel from the Fire and Rescue Department.

Also at the scene today were firefighters who were present during the incident in which Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim was said to have been dragged and beaten by rioters.

Selangor police chief Datuk Mazlan Mansor said the investigation is being done to shed light on what actually happened. The incident also saw a fire engine sustaining damages from rocks and other objects thrown at it.

"Today, the police's Forensic Unit is conducting an investigation and a reenactment at the location to enable us to get more details on what happened to Adib and the Fire and Rescue team.

"At the moment, I am not able to divulge more information in order to ensure full investigation can be carried out," he said when contacted by NSTP today.

He however informed that police had to close one lane temporarily at the location while investigation is being carried out.

Commenting on the situation at the temple, Mazlan said things are now under control.

"I find that things at the temple have gone back to normal and people are going about their daily activities as usual," he said.

Mazlan reminded all quarters not to spread unverifed information which could lead to problems, adding that police would not think twice about taking action against them.

He said presently there are some 500 police officers and personnel stationed at the temple and its surrounding area.

Checks this morning found the area to be calm, with traffic flowing smoothly, except for the occasional motorist slowing down to look at the temple which is now being guarded by the Federal Reserve Unit (FRU), traffic police as well as officers from the Subang Jaya district police headquarters.
