Bangsar, Solaris and Bukit Bintang are among the locations targeted by terror groups to spread fear in the country.
Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said the authorities were aware of such threats and are on standby for any possibilities.
”The threats are there and we are very well aware of this, so we are on standby for any possible event.”
Among the places that they are targeting include Kuala Lumpur City Centre, Bukit Bintang, Publika, Solaris, Hartamas, Bangsar and The Curve.
”We will also consider engaging the help of the Defence Ministry to secure popular tourist and leisure hotspots if the need arises.”
The motive of this group is to destabilise popular tourist countries and create fear, simiar to the recent attack in Jakarta, Indonesia.
