According to The Malay Mail Online, the students were directed to leave the compound around 11am following the discovery of an unattended bag.

“They got a call from someone speaking in English. He (the caller) said he saw some Iranian guy putting a bomb in one of the toilets,” he told reporters.
Mohd Zaini said that after being notified by the university, the police proceeded to evacuate the campus with over 2,000 students to conduct a full search of the premises.
“We had to evacuate and check because don’t know what toilet the bomb is in,” he explained.
Segi College Kota Damansara reopened at about 2pm and students have re-entered, but police presence remained heavy as investigations are still on going.
The police also took down statements from some of the employees including the staff who received the information.
Mohd Zaini also said the they will interview foreign students there over the threat, but said this was a matter of procedure and not to typecast any group.
