Beeping sound leads Malaysian nurse to find home-made bomb planted on her car

PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - An incessant beeping sound led a 27-year-old nurse to find an improvised explosive device (IED) planted on her car in Kapar, Klang.

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Fadzil Ahmat said the nurse was driving back home from work at about 10pm Saturday (July 8) when she heard the beeping.

SAC Fadzil said that the nurse told police that she then drove to her uncle's house at Taman Damai, Kapar, to check the source of the beeping.

He added that the uncle noticed a suspicious object, believed to be a bomb, attached to the bumper of the car.

SAC Fadzil said they contacted the police and a bomb disposal unit was deployed to the scene.

"Our checks confirmed that the object is an IED," said SAC Fadzil.

He added that the bomb disposal unit managed to defuse the IED at about 2.30am on Sunday.

"We are still in the midst of establishing the motive of the incident and we will investigate it from all angles," SAC Fadzil added.

SAC Fadzil said the case was being investigated under Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation and Section 8 of the Explosives Act 1957.
