RESIDENTS of people’s housing project (PPR) Intan Baiduri in Kuala Lumpur are concerned and frustrated over a group of teenagers who are constantly causing a ruckus at the parking area on the premises.
Around 20 teenagers are said to be making a lot of noise from midnight until the wee hours of the morning. They are also suspected of vandalising some residents’ vehicles.
Intan Baiduri Residents Association (IBRA) committee member Khairul Anuwar Yusoff said they had met with the parents of these teenagers regarding this matter but many of them were uncooperative.
“Some parents said their children were too difficult to manage, while others became hostile towards us.
“The residents do not want to tell off the teenagers because they fear their vehicles may be vandalised, ” said Khairul.
He said the issue started after the movement control order (MCO) began in March when schools were closed.
Khairul said the RA lodged a police report over the matter and informed the National Anti-Drug Agency for further investigation.
“We do not know if any of the teenagers are involved in drugs, ” he said.
He added that the issue was forwarded via WhatsApp to the Pertiwi hotline as well, but residents were told the matter was out of its jurisdiction.
“We are worried that this problem could lead to social ills.
“A fight broke out last week within the group, so we need the relevant authorities to intervene before the issue becomes worse, ” said Khairul.
