The police have taken statements from the players and are tracking down the suspects. No arrest has been made.

The case has been classified as armed robbery under Section 395 of the Penal Code.

ACP Zainal Rashid urged anyone with information on the case to contact 03-5637-3722 or visit the nearest police station.
