Lillian reported that as she spoke to me, she was staring directly at an angry-looking FRU water cannon.
She could also see the three ‘pengundi hantu’ buses, now empty, in the police compound.
Many PKR supporters have converged on the station and are becoming increasingly patient.
YB Ronnie Liu is in the station. It is rumoured that YB Karpal Singh is also in there.
Gobalakrishnan, who is reported to have been beaten up by police, together with hiis sons, and then arrested, is also reported to be held at this station.
Word is that Gobala saw police escorting one of the buses and wanted to know why they were escorting the bus into Permatang Pauh.
