Viral Sepang ‘kidnapping’ video untrue — Police

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 8 — The police confirmed the ‘kidnapping’ video, which went viral on social media recently, is not true but is instead a case of suspects fleeing from police inspection in Sungai Pelek, Sepang, on October 31.

Sepang district police chief ACP Wan Kamarul Azran Wan Yusof said the Sungai Pelek police station received a report of a suspicious car in front of a laundrette in Sepang Putra at about 9.30am last Tuesday.

When approached for inspection, the car driver did not cooperate before hitting the police motorcycle parked on the side of the road and fled the scene.

“As a result of information and intelligence, the police arrested two foreign men in front of a hotel in Taman Semarak 1, Nilai, Negeri Sembilan, at about 1pm on the same day,” he said in a statement yesterday night.

Wan Kamarul Azran said both men tested positive for methamphetamine, and the case is being investigated under Sections 186 and 427 of the Penal Code for obstructing public servants from carrying out their duties and committing mischief.

Both suspects were remanded until November 18 under the Immigration Act 1959/63.

Recently, a video clip showing a grey Honda Civic car, allegedly involved in ‘kidnapping’ children in Sepang and Negeri Sembilan, was making its rounds on WhatsApp.
