In the 4.15pm incident, one of two petrol bombs which were hurled at a counter in front of the nightclub, exploded.

Petaling Jaya police chief, ACP Mohd Zani Che Din said the attack injured a Bangladeshi worker in his 30’s.

The victim, who sustained burns on the hands and head was warded at the Sungai Buloh Hospital, he added.

Speaking to reporters at the scene of the attack, he said based on closed-circuit television recording at the premises, two people were believed to have been behind the attack.
