PETALING JAYA: A local actor and comedian was fined RM800 for damaging a plastic chair in a guardhouse after he was denied entry to his gated housing area for not having a security sticker.

Magistrate Salamiah Salleh said S. Gana Pragasam must serve 14 days in jail if he failed to settle the fine, which he paid.

Gana, 47, had pleaded guilty to the charge of committing mischief at the guardhouse in Taman Perumahan Atillia dan Allisia, Ara Damansara, at about 10.20pm on Aug 4.

According to facts of the case, Gana, who did not have an access card to enter the gated property where he resides, lost his cool when he was requested to use the visitor’s lane instead by a security guard.

Salamiah said he should not have lost his temper over a small matter.

In mitigation, counsel B.R. Puvarasan said that his client was married and has four sons aged between eight and 15.

He said Gana was denied entry by the guard on duty despite having lived there for the past 10 years.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Siti Fatimah Yahya said Gana had no previous convictions.

The actor has been in several movies, including Appalam which was directed by Afdlin Shauki.
