Selangor police chief Datuk Noor Azam Jamaludin told Bernama today, the suspects, aged between 50 and 60 would be remanded until next Thursday for further investigation.
Noor Azam said, the suspects who are brothers have been managing the factory since their father’s death.
The remand order was issued by Sessions Court judge Nurul Mardhiah Mohamed Redza.

The case is being investigated according to Section 430 of the Penal Code and all the suspects were brought to the Gombak district police headquarters for further investigation.
Following oil pollution which came from the factory, four Sungai Selangor water treatment plants (LRA) had to suspend operations since Thursday, disrupting water supply to a total of 1,292 areas in the Klang Valley, Petaling, Klang/Shah Alam, Kuala Selangor, Hulu Selangor, Gombak and Kuala Langat, involving nearly 1.2 million consumer accounts. — Bernama
