KUALA LUMPUR: Police are on the trail of the people behind a wire trap which could possibly injure motorcyclists along the Kesas Highway.
Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Sharul Othman Mansor said they received a report about it at 11.20am on Friday.
Kesas patrolman Muhammad Hafizuddin Mohamed lodged a police report that a wire was placed just at the exit of a tunnel on the motorcycle lane near the Awan Kecil turnout.
“He was riding his motorcycle with a colleague when they rode into the wire which caught his neck and injured him,” ACP Sharul Othman said yesterday.
On Friday, Facebook Info Roadblock JPJ/Polis page uploaded a photo of the patrolman with cuts on his neck.
The post claimed that Muhammad Hafizuddin, 26, was on duty riding along the motorcycle lane at around 5.35am when the incident occurred at KM49.7 of the highway heading towards Kuala Lumpur.
It said the wire trap could have been placed for a possible robbery attempt.
“We are investigating the case as obstruction and interference under Section 110 of The Road Transport Act 1987.
“Anyone with information on the case should contact us immediately,” ACP Sharul Othman said, urging motorcyclists to be vigilant at all times.
