GEORGE TOWN, Jul 3 – The KL 2017 Torch Run in view with the 29th SEA Games and ninth Para Asean Games this year has reached Penang island. Six swimmers led by Insp. Adni Shaari brought the torch and swam across the 3.5km channel from Pulau Jerejak. They started 6.30am and reached marine police base in Batu Uban at 9am.
Upon reaching the jetty, Adni accompanied by the rest of swimmers handed the torch to marine base commander ACP Rosman Ismail before it was passed to the state-federal development officer Syed Shaari Syed Abdullah.
