Seven nabbed for hurling bottles onto highway

KUALA LUMPUR: Seven workers at an entertainment outlet have been detained after liquor bottles were thrown from a high rise in Kampung Baru onto an expressway.

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Noor Dellhan Yahaya said four men aged between 20 and 23 and three women were detained in the Dang Wangi area on Saturday and early Sunday morning.

“We also seized a mobile phone and a set of clothing. Two of those detained, including the main male suspect, have been remanded until Tuesday,” he said.

Two of the women are 23 years old while the other is 31.

The case is being investigated under Sections 268 and 336 of the Penal Code as well as Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act 1955.

“The main suspect also tested positive for ketamine and is being investigated under Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drug Act 1952,” he added.
