KELANTAN police seized 97,780 litres of diesel worth RM210,227 in two separate raids in Tanah Merah and Machang early today.
Acting state police chief Muhamad Zaki Harun said eight suspects, including a Bangladeshi, were detained in the raids.
He said the raids were conducted by a team from the Eighth Battalion of the General Operations Force and the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry in Kelantan.
“They also seized five lorries, three fuel suction machines and six static tanks worth a total RM910,007 in the two raids.
“All the suspects were taken to the Tanah Merah and Machang district police headquarters for further action.
“The case is being investigated under section 21 of the Control of Supplies Act 1961,” he said after visiting the location where the diesel was seized in Kampung Tebing Tinggi, Tanah Merah today.
He said the group’s modus operandi was to buy subsidised oil using ordinary lorries with modified fuel tanks, which was then transferred to the static tanks.
“We believe the group has been illegally operating for a long time,” he added. – Bernama, June 19, 2022.
