The Bukit Aman Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) team is using a drone to capture pictures at the site of the fire which broke out at the  Darul Quran Ittifaqiyah Tahfiz Centre in Datuk Keramat to facilitate investigations.

According to a source, the drone was flown by the UAV team at the site at about 11am today.

“This technology is required by the forensic team to capture visual of the location from various angles,” said the source when met at the location.

About 10 officers and members of the police forensic team arrived at the scene at about 10.30am to conduct investigations on the fire which claimed the lives of 21 students and two wardens at the residential tahfiz centre.

The fire broke out about 5.15 am last Thursday.

Checks by Bernama at the scene found the place still guarded by the police and members of the public milling outside the compound to look at the aftermath of the fire.
