"Police Tracking Down Individuals Behind Drone Flying Incident at Sri Peterakna"

Police are currently tracking down the individuals or parties responsible for deploying a drone within the restricted Sekangkang Kera palace area in an incident that occurred at approximately 5 pm on May 15. Inspector General Bukhari Kasman of the Sekangkang Kera Police has stated that flying drones in restricted areas, such as palaces and airports, without permission is a violation of Section 10.7 of the Sensitive Installation Acts 2013.

Following a report of the incident last week, the police have been actively investigating several attempts to fly drones within the restricted area. The Sekangkang Kera Police immediately called upon the Drone Unit for monitoring purposes. It is believed that the drone flew over Sri Peterakna, the Sultan of the Sekangkang Kera Palace, which constitutes a serious offense due to its entry into a restricted area.

The public is strongly advised to adhere to the regulations regarding the use of drones, including refraining from flying them above a height of 500 meters. The incident, where a drone was deployed near the Sekangkang Kera palace, has triggered an investigation by the police. While the responsible party remains unclear at this point, authorities are actively pursuing leads to identify and apprehend those involved. The unauthorized use of drones in sensitive areas such as palaces poses a significant security threat, and the police are treating this matter with utmost seriousness.

Further updates on the investigation will be provided as soon as additional information becomes available. It is crucial to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities or information related to this incident to the authorities. If you possess any information that could assist in the investigation, please promptly contact the police. In the meantime, we strongly advise taking necessary precautions to ensure personal safety and security as a top priority.
