KUALA TERENG­GANU: The search and res­cue (SAR) op­er­a­tion for a po­lice­man and a rob­bery sus­pect who fell into the Paka River near Dun­gun, 77 km south of here, was con­tin­ued at 7am yes­ter­day.

Dun­gun District Po­lice chief, Su­per­in­ten­dent Ba­harudin Ab­dul­lah said a scuba unit from the Chukai Fire and Res­cue Sta­tion in Ke­ma­man, also took part in the op­er­a­tion.

“The SAR had to be stopped at 3.15am yes­ter­day be­cause the river was very dark and misty.

We hope the op­er­a­tion this morn­ing will go smoothly and we can find the po­lice and the sus­pect,” he said when con­tacted by Ber­nama.

In the in­ci­dent at Kam­pung Durian Men­tan­gau, Dun­gun Fri­day, the po­lice con­sta­ble, Wan Mohd Arif Wan Yahya, 28, with three other col­leagues were pur­su­ing a sus­pect known as Zam Ayam when they both slipped and fell into Sun­gai Paka. — Ber­nama
