Batu Kawan MP Kasthuriraani Patto.
KUALA LUMPUR: Batu Kawan MP Kasthuriraani Patto lost about RM5,000 worth of valuables when her handbag was stolen from her car on Monday.
The DAP politician had been travelling alone from Penang to attend the Dewan Rakyat sitting here when the incident occurred.
She had stopped at a petrol station at the Sungai Perak rest area near Ipoh, along the North South Expressway at about 7.30am.
"I left my handbag in the car, taking only my purse, and went to the washroom and later to buy something from the shop.
"Only after I got to my car did I realise the keyhole of my car's passenger seat had been tampered with, and my handbag was missing," she said when met at the Parliament lobby on Tuesday.
Among the items lost are two smartphones, each costing about RM1,000.
Kasthuriraani lodged a police report at the Bercham police station, and gave her statement at the Kuala Kangsar district police headquarters the same day.
She said a staff on duty at the petrol station had seen two men standing by her car, who later drove off in a white car as she was leaving the shop.
