KUALA LUMPUR: Inspector General of Police, Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador dispelled rumours that the police had arrested wanted fugitive businessman, Low Taek Jho, better known as Jho Low.

The message read as the following:

“Breaking News From Insider – JhoLow has been arrested by Chinese government and is to be transferred via RMAF to KLIA. Transpired from Huawei deal talk by Mahathir. The matter has been maintained as confidential for the time being.”

The top cop previously had told the press that the police have found new leads on the whereabouts of Jho Low.
