SERDANG: The explosion at a nightspot in IOI Boulevard, which left eight people hurt, was not an act of terror, police said.
Selangor deputy CPO Deputy Comm Datuk Abd Rahim Jaafar said police are investigating whether the attack was fueled by business rivalry, vengeance, or if the suspects were targeting specific individuals at the nightspot.
He said the case is being investigated as attempted murder.
It is learnt that patrons of the establishment were watching a Euro 2016 football match when the explosion occurred at 2.15am, Tuesday.
DCP Rahim confirmed the explosion was caused by a hand grenade.
Four men and four women, including a female Chinese national, were sent to Hospital Serdang and Hospital Sunway for treatment.
