QuickCheck: Did a man commit arson in retaliation to being tied up in Selangor?


NO ONE likes being restrained against their will – so it's understandable that they would retaliate in such an instance.

Recently, word of an unusual series of events saw high interest online – it was claimed that a man tried to burn down the apartment he stayed in after a housemate tied him down for being under the influence of drugs.

Is there any truth to this claim?

VERDICT:

TRUE

Serdang police chief ACP A. Anbalagan confirmed that the incident occurred, saying that it took place at Pangsapuri Kinrara in Taman Kinrara.

"An investigation showed that the 34-year-old male suspect managed to free himself after he had been tied down by a housemate. He then tried to burn the apartment up out of anger," he said.
