KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 2 (Bernama) — Former Perlis Mufti Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin was arrested while giving a religious talk at a house in Taman Sri Ukay, Hulu Klang, early Monday.

According to witnesses, Asri was arrested at 12.10am by police and the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS) officers and was then taken to the Hulu Klang police station.

The talk was attended by about 100 people, including Ampang member of parliament Zuraida Kamaruddin and Hulu Klang assemblyman Saari Sungib.

Ampang district police chief ACP Abdul Jalil Hassan when contacted said police were only assisting JAIS in the operation and that he did not have details on the matter.
