Police have increased security measures for Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner to Malaysia after he was assaulted at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport earlier this month.

Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar also said his men were looking for four more suspects who were allegedly involved in the attack on Ibrahim Sahib Ansar.

Earlier reports had stated that a group of Malaysian Tamils had assaulted Ibrahim at a restricted area in the KLIA, with CCTV footage showing the angry mob cornering and questioning him before beating him down to the floor.
