Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar today informed that police have arrested controversial blogger Papagomo at his residence regarding the recent incident at Low Yat Plaza.

According to Khalid, the blogger whose real name is Wan Muhammad Azri Wan Deris was detained for allegedly publishing false and seditious information which led to the riot outside the building.

"He was arrested last night. We have also arrested four others to assist us in the investigation over the riot that happened that day. We will arrest anyone who tries to incite hatred and instigate the situation," he said during a press conference held at the Gombak toll plaza on Wednesday.

Khalid also said the police are looking for another suspect, a division chief of a political party in Penang, for trying to spark hatred about the Low Yat incident.

He also warned sosial media practitioners to be mindful of their postings and that the police will not compromise on anyone making seditious remarks on the internet.

"I have also witnessed some people trying to make their own analyst on social media on why such things happen. Be careful... if we find it seditious, we will take action," he said.

Khalid said the police will arrest anyone who ignite hatred among Malaysians regardless of race.

To date, he said police have arrested 25 people in connection to the Low Yat incident and will continue to do so.

During the incident, at least three people were injured including a reporter and a photographer when a group of over 100 men started rioting near Low Yat Plaza shortly after midnight.

The situation calmed down after the police Federal Reserve Unit (FRU) arrived at the scene. The crowd dispersed about 12.40am. Police personnel including the FRU were closely monitoring the situation until 2am.
