He stressed that such lawlessness would not be tolerated.
“I condemn in the strongest terms the violence that occurred this morning in Bukit Bintang,” he said in a statement today.
“The police investigation is underway, and the perpetrators of this crime will be found and brought to justice,” he added.
A 36-year-old car jockey, Tiong Kwong Yie, was killed, while 12 other people, including foreign tourists, were injured in the 4.20 am explosion of a handmade grenade in front of a nightclub at the Sun Complex in Bukit Bintang here.
Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Tajuddin Md Isa had said the explosion was believed to be caused by a fight over a business territory between gangster groups.
