Kuala Lumpur (The Star/ANN) - In the wake of a growing number of attacks on women at Malaysian shopping malls and hypermarkets, the country's police yesterday said it would adapt strategies to secure such places.
Police were analysing crimes in the country and looking for new ways to apprehend the culprits, said Inspector-General of Police Ismail Omar.
