IPOH, Aug 23 — A man who was arrested for allegedly threatening to kill DAP National Socialist Youth (DAPSY) chief Howard Lee Chuan How, has been released on police bail.

Perak police chief Datuk Razarudin Husain, when contacted by Bernama, said the 35-year-old suspect was released yesterday afternoon.
