Police Investigates Group Cooking at Petrol Station

The police have opened investigation papers on a group of individuals cooking at a Petron petrol station in Genting Highlands. A video showing their actions has gone viral which drew criticism from many quarters.

Bentong District Police Chief, Superintendent Zaiham Mohd Kahar said the police received a complaint regarding the matter at 12.35 yesterday at the Bentong Police Station.

He said that the police report was based on a viral video where the act of cooking at the gas station caused concern and anger in the community because it was dangerous.

“The result of the police investigation found that the video recording was uploaded in the X (formerly Twitter) social media site.”

In relation to that, he said the police opened investigation papers and the case will be investigated according to Section 268 of the Penal Code, for the offence of causing general annoyance to the public. The investigation is also conducted in accordance with Section 336 of the Penal Code, for acts endangering the life or safety of others and oneself.”

In the meantime, Zaiham said his party will carry out integrated operations around the location of the gas station, especially on weekends and public holidays.

“This is because the police received information and complaints about the location often being the focus of vehicle owners gatherings and activities that disturb public order and other road users who pass through the location,” he said.

The approximately 50-second video clip features a group of Honda Jazz owners consisting of men and women hanging out while cooking instant noodles using a portable gas stove and dining at the gas station.

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."
