IPOH: A burger seller pleaded not guilty to causing an explosion by throwing fireworks at three people in front of the Stadium Indera Mulia on Monday.
Mohd Sahir Yahya, 26, was charged under Section 6 (1) of the Explosives Act 1957 for committing the act near the stadium on April 16 at about 1am.
According to the charge sheet, Mohd Sahir had thrown the fireworks at Mohd Mahiri Hussin, Zulhilmi Hafiz Hamdan and Muhamad Razif Semait.
When pleading for a lower bail, Mohd Sahir's lawyer Mohd Fitri Asmuni said he was only a small trader and did not have stable income and asked the Magistrate court judge Nor Haslinda A Raof to set bail at RM1,000.
"His parents are old and his father is only a farmer," he said.
As the court proceeding had only started at about 4.50pm, Mohd Fitri also asked that the bail be paid on Tuesday as the bank has already closed.
"I also asked that Mohd Sahir be released as his family agreed to post bail" he said.
