JOHOR BARU: Two men have been nabbed in relation to the altercation outside the Customs, Immigration,and Quarantine Complex Complex (CIQ) in Bangunan Sultan Iskandar (BSI) here.
Johor Baru South OCPD Asst Comm Raub Selamat said both suspects were arrested following a 14-second video that went viral on Monday (May 22).
“Both of them are Malaysians working in Singapore and were riding motorcycles on their way back home,’’ he said in a press conference on Wednesday (May 31).
ACP Raub said the altercation began when the 27-year-old suspect had accidentally hit the motorcycle ridden by a 34-year-old suspect who was in front of him.
He said the 27-year-old suspect tested positive when he was detained and has two previous drug-related offences.
The 34-year-old suspect was arrested on Tuesday (May 31), he added.
“The incident happened at the motorcycle lane at the CIQ Complex at 4pm during peak hours,’’ said ACP Raub.
He said both suspects were unhappy following the incident and challenged each other to a fight after clearing the Malaysian Immigration checkpoint.
Earlier, a video was posted on Facebook showing a man being strangled by another man, with others trying to stop the duo on the road.
“The two motorcycle riders were being held by people at the scene,’’ said ACP Raub, adding both suspects did not suffer any injuries.
