In a video that went viral on social media, a man is seen pouring a substance on a white car and setting it alight, and it is claimed that the event took place at an apartment at Taman Bukit Serdang, Seri Kembangan. Is this true?
In a statement on Wednesday (Dec 8), Serdang OCPD Asst Comm AA Anbalagan confirmed that the incident happened as it appeared in the video, saying that one of the victim’s neighbours alerted her to the incident.
He added that firemen had managed to put out the flames by the time the woman got to her car and then said that a 29-year-old man was arrested in Bandar Kinrara, Puchong.
ACP Anbalagan said that the man had no prior criminal record and tested negative for drugs.
“The reason for the incident was that the suspect was unsatisfied that the victim rejected his advances for the last 10 years. The case is being investigated under Section 435 of the Penal Code,” added ACP Anbalagan.
