SUBANG JAYA - A lorry driver and three attendants, including a Cambodian, have been arrested over a homemade rifle.

During the 1am raid at a house in Kampung Seri Aman, Puchong, last Saturday, the police found the rifle, which had been fashioned out of PVC piping, and marbles believed to be used as bullets.

"We are investigating what the men planned to use the rifle for. They have been cooperative with the police so far," Subang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Ramli Yahaya said here yesterday.

In another case, he said the police were looking for two Pakistani men in connection with the robbery of one of their countrymen, a computer programmer.

"The two men and the computer programmer came to Malaysia on tourist visas from Dubai.

"They were met at the KL Inter­­national Airport by another Pakis­tani working in Malaysia and were brought to an apartment in Sunway at around midnight on Jan 13.

"About an hour later, the computer programmer alleged that the two men bound him and took his belongings," said ACP Ramli, adding that he was released later by the Pakistani working in Malaysia.

The victim lodged a police report, claiming to have lost RM83,000 (S$27,200) via ATM withdrawals and Internet banking transactions.
