Police to charge Genting 'stunt' girls with rash or negligent driving
A few days after three girls who were caught on videos being reckless in their car on their way to Genting Highlands, Bentong Police Deputy Chief ASP S. Somo, 30 August, said that they are to be prosecuted soon, reported Bernama.
They would be charged with rash or negligent driving, Somo told Bernama, adding that the investigation papers would be sent to the public prosecutor this week.
"The owner of the car had not used the vehicle on that day, but we have identified all those who were in the car on that occasion."
Late Sunday night, 28 August, a Facebook user, Giin Yong, uploaded two videos that she shot on her phone on the way to Genting Highlands a day before. At the time of writing, 29 August, the videos have been shared over 23,000 times.
Malaysians across Facebook are sharing the videos, expressing shock and anger.
The videos show a group of young girls wearing hijabs, seen sticking out their upper body while riding on the windows of their car.
According to Giin Yong, they were recklessly driving towards Genting Highlands.
Considering how the road to Genting Highlands has seen a number of fatal road accidents, it's no surprise that the act of the young girls is not sitting well with Malaysians on the Internet, who have labelled the girls and their act as "stupid".
