PETALING JAYA: A journey home turned into a nightmare for a welder when he was assaulted by a group of bikers after an accident on the Kesas Highway. 

Loh Chee Hong, 33, was seriously injured during the incident on Sunday night, in which he claimed that he was attacked by bikers in a convoy of more than 30 motorcycles escorted by police. 

He said he was heading home via Kesas Highway after dropping off his sister in Seri Kembangan. 

The bikers, who had turned into the highway from Jalan Sungai Besi near Mint Hotel, cut into his lane so suddenly that he was unable to brake in time and he hit one of them, he told a press conference arranged by MCA Public Services and Complaints Department head Michael Chong on Thursday. 

Loh said he stopped his car after the collision to help the biker but his biker friends’ started to kick and punch him. 

“They also smashed the windscreen and damaged my car,” he added. 

Loh complained to Chong, saying that he was disappointed with the police because they did not stop the attackers immediately. 

“When I was lying semi-conscious on the road, then only did the police ask them (the attackers) to go away,” he said, adding that he borrowed a cellular phone from a policeman to inform his family. 

Loh said he made separate police reports on the accident and the assault.
