Teen pays ultimate price for sneaking out on motorcycle

The Star, Wednesday November 19, 2014

PETALING JAYA: A teenager sneaked out in his father’s motorcycle only to die in a fatal accident on Monday afternoon in Jalan Datuk Dagang, Sungai Ramal Luar, Kajang.

Muhammad Nazaruddin Abd Ra­­zak, 13, rode without a helmet when another motorcyclist, a man in his 40s, grazed his silver Modenas Kris.

The teenager lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a signboard.

Muhammad Nazaruddin, who was heading to Bangi, died at the scene of the accident due to severe head injuries while the older man suffered a broken leg and hand after falling off his machine.

Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Ab Rashid Ab Wahad said police were alerted at about 12.25pm.

“Investigations revealed that the boy was speeding,” he said.

“We believe that it was one of the reasons why he couldn’t avoid being hit.”
ACP Ab Rashid said checks revealed that the teenager had gone out without his parents’ knowledge.

“The father only knew that his son was missing when he came home for lunch,” ACP Ab Rashid said.

“He said his son had not asked for his permission to use the motorcycle.”

Muhammad Nazaruddin’s body was sent to the Serdang Hospital for post-mortem while the older man received treatment at Hospital Kajang.

The case is being investigated for reckless driving under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.

In a separate incident, a 39-year-old Information Technology company manager was robbed of his Toyota Camry at Batu 9, Kajang, on Monday morning.

The man was on his way to his Bandar Tun Hussein Onn office when another vehicle, also a Toyota Camry, knocked into his.

“He pulled over to check,” said ACP Ab Rashid. “That was when two men, believed to be in their 30s, alighted from their vehicle and started hitting the victim before fleeing with his car.

“We suspect that there were three men involved,” he said, adding that their vehicle’s registration number was fake.

Also gone were an iPad, two handphones, a GPS and a laptop that were in the victim’s car.

On illegal gambling in Kajang, ACP Ab Rashid said 3,287 raids were conducted from January to October.

“A total of 434 investigation papers were opened during this period,” he said.

Of the figure, 298 were pending investigations while 130 individuals were charged in court.

“We arrested 642 premise owners and operators, aged between 20 and 65,” ACP Ab Rashid said.

“A total of 7,896 gambling machines were also seized, including RM31,844 cash.

“We have cut the water supply to 20 premises while 31 have had their electricity disconnected.”
