LAHAD DATU: An active mortar bomb from 2013 Op Daulat was discovered at Ladang Sahabat 17 in Tungku near here, on Monday. The bomb from the Kampung Tanduo invasion was discovered by an estate worker, who then alerted his manager at about 7am. District police chief Assistant Commissioner Hamzah Ahmad said an auxiliary police team was sent to the site after receiving a report on the bomb discovery. He said a Bomb Squad was also deployed to the estate to conduct inspection at the surrounding areas. “Based on preliminary investigation, the bomb belongs to the Malaysian armed forces. It was fired during the battle, but did not explode,” he said. Hamzah said the bomb squad team had the explosive detonated on the same day. © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
