PUTRAJAYA, April 25 — The police have confirmed an incident involving a package with a bomb threat message discovered at the cargo scanner of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) with investigations finding it did not contain any explosives.

KLIA District Police chief ACP Azman Shari’at said further investigations were still being conducted in accordance with Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal threat.

He said the police received a report at 1.30pm from the officer operating the scanning machine about a package addressed to someone in Limbang, Sarawak.

He said the scanned package was believed to contain a battery and some wires, and a check by the officer found words written on the package stating: “Beware, do not throw or it will explode”.


“The police immediately conducted an investigation. Detection using dogs from the K-9 unit found it negative for explosives,” he said when contacted here today.

Due to the threat message on the package, Azman said following the standard operating procedure (SOP), the Bomb Disposal Unit was called in and the package was destroyed using a robotic unit, with no explosion occurring.

Azman said an examination of the package found it contained a laptop and a charging cable. — Bernama
