Prosecutors raided 10 offices, including that of the Yongsan Police Precinct and the Yongsan District Office, in its probe of the Itaewon tragedy that killed 158 people on the night of Oct. 29.
 
The Seoul Western District Prosecutors' Office conducted the raid Tuesday morning, searching for data and evidence that would support the charges of those affiliated with the tragedy, including head of the Yongsan District Office Park Hee-young and ex-chief of the Yongsan Police Precinct Lee Im-jae.
 
Prosecutors also searched and seized the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency to look for documents related to the pre-Halloween festivities in Itaewon.
