According to New Straits Times, Southwest district police chief Superintendent Kamarul Rizal Jenal said police already identified the number plates of the riders involved.

“We’ve filed a report on the incident, and we’re in the process of finding the other motorcyclists involved to help with the inquiry,” he said.

The case will be investigated under Section 42(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.

Investigation officer, Inspector Hamizah Ahmad Rosli said that anyone who has information regarding the incident can report it to the police at 013-2064682. 

In the 45-seconds video, the riders can be seen doing a “wheelie” with the speedometer showing they were traveling at a speed of 280 km/h. That’s way too fast!

Very bahaya! Please stay safe when you’re on the road, guys. Especially if you’re driving late at night.
