Najib's lawyer, Datuk Harpal Singh Grewal, when met at the site earlier, said the police confiscated handbags, clothes, and gifts as evidence.

Police are conducting a search to seize valuables and documents in relation to 1MDB at the Langgak Duta private residence of former prime minister Najib Razak, a source said.

A man, who claimed to be a neighbour of Najib, was stopped by the police as he approached the house at 11.20 am on Thursday.

He said the family was cooperative.

"It's a big house so they had to search each room".

He later confirmed that no arrests have been made and no charges were mentioned by the authorities so far.

More than 10 police vehicles, including a truck, arrived at the house at 10.15pm on Wednesday after Najib had returned from attending "terawih" prayers at the Kampung Baru Mosque here.

"There are no arrests now and no indication that there will be an arrest", he said.

Another police Mobile Patrol Vehicle (MPV) was seen entering Taman Duta at 10.12am.

It is learnt that another raid was also conducted simultaneously at luxury apartment in KL that was recently reported to have been turned into a storage place for the plush handbags and accessories allegedly owned by Najib's wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

Police top brass were tight-lipped and unreachable for comment.

On Tuesday, newly elected Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed held a meeting with police top brass including Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun and federal CCID director Commissioner Datuk Seri Amar Singh Ishar Singh where he is believed to have ordered the probe on 1MDB be expedited.

As of 8.30am, police were still inside Najib's home in Taman Duta.
