Bullets and pistol seized after Malaysia Cup final

SHAH ALAM - Police seized a pistol and seven live bullets in the men's toilet after the Malaysia Cup final at the Shah Alam Stadium.

They also rounded up 90 people for multiple offences, including burning of flares during the match, hurling bottles and selling fake tickets.

Shah Alam OCPD Asst Comm Zahedi Ayub said the Browning pistol and the bullets were found in the toilet at the stadium's Quadron C after the match between Pahang and Kelantan Sunday night.

"We are still tracing the owner," he said. "It is alarming that spectators would bring a weapon to a football match," he said yesterday.

ACP Zahedi said those detained had since been released on police bail.

"Besides the isolated incidents, the match went on without any trouble. There was no fighting between rival fans as both sides were assigned specific routes," he said.

The match ended with Pahang clinching the coveted cup with a 1-0 victory over their east coast rivals.
