30 Students Nabbed during Anti Road Hooligan Ops

Despite the many cases of deaths, injuries and arrests, 30 secondary school students were among the 178 individuals arrested by the police in a combined Anti Hooligan Ops at Jalan Jelapang, near Ipoh.

The operation started at 2.30 in the morning and was carried out by a team of 72 officers and members of the Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) of the Ipoh District Police Headquarters (IPD) together with the Perak National Anti-Drug Agency (AADK).

Ipoh District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Abang Zainal Abidin Abang Ahmad said, those arrested for various offenses consisted of 166 men and 12 women aged between 15 and 34 years.

“Among those arrested were 30 secondary school students and four students of higher education institutes (IPT).

“Of the 143 motorcycles detained, a total of 19 were confiscated for various offences, the most serious of which was modifying vehicles in accordance with Section 64(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 and a total of 302 summonses were issued to road users,” he said.

Apart from that, there were also some individuals who are high. The result of a urine screening test conducted by AADK found that five individuals tested positive for drugs, one of whom had been arrested for the same offence last year.

“The Narcotics Crime Investigation Division of IPD Ipoh and AADK will take further action on the five individuals.

“This operation was planned for the purpose of combating the activities of road hooligans for which the police have received many complaints from residents for disturbing public order,” he said.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
