Selangor police chief Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed said that police have nabbed several individuals connected to the matter including the organiser, an Instagram celebrity who goes by the name of ‘Cik Lala’.

“The individual was released on police bail today. However, the police are collecting all the evidence and arrests will be made in stages because some of the dancers had come from other areas,” he said during an Aidilfitri gathering at the Serdang Police Headquarters yesterday.
