A police investigation has revealed that the family of the 21-year-old man responsible for the attack on the Ulu Tiram police station lived in isolation because they believed the surrounding community consisted of infidels.

During a press conference at the Home Ministry following its monthly meeting, minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said an investigation into the case is ongoing, and added that police are "fine-tuning" the probe before deciding on the next course of action.

Saifuddin also clarified that the recent incidents involving two men attempting to enter the Istana Negara grounds with a weapon, a man trying to snatch a sub-machine gun from a policeman in Penang, and the death threat received by Seputeh MP Teresa Kok are not related to the Ulu Tiram case.
