KUALA LUMPUR: A 22-year-old man who was easing himself at an LRT station restroom suffered injuries when the toilet bowl exploded.
The 1.20pm incident occurred at the Sri Rampai LRT station yesterday when Muhd Sakereen Basri was answering the call of nature.
He suffered injuries to his thighs and the back of his body.
Sentul OCPD Asst Comm Zakaria Pagan said forensics personnel found splinters of the bowl and pieces of paper at the scene.
He said the papers were used to wrap the explosives, believed to be firecrackers, that were kept near the toilet bowl by some irresponsible parties.
“CCTV footages showed several people going in and out of the toilet,” said ACP Zakaria.
“Police have yet to ascertain the culprit behind the work.
“It could be the work of mischievous teenagers who were playing in the area,” he said.
ACP Zakaria said police would record Muhd Sakereen's statement to ascertain how the explosion took place. - theStarOnline
