Barely a year after the Low Yat Plaza incident, another similar brawl broke out late yesterday (20th December, Sunday) involving IT customers and traders.
The 4:30pm Kota Raya shopping complex incident occurred when several dissatisfied customers, apparently backed by a non-governmental organisation (NGO), went to seek a refund from several seller who had allegedly cheated them. It is believed that the group had demanded for refunds for handphones they claimed they had been overcharged for.
Harian Metro quoted one Roslan Haji Ismail, a self-proclaimed activist and “leader” of the group, as saying that the argument started when one of the traders “behaved rudely and tried to chase them out”. He added that the scams were a regular occurrence but no one dares to report them.
As such brawl broke out, resulting in security personnel ordering the complex to be shut down. The scuffle lasted for about 5 minutes and about 2 minutes odd of it was caught on video.
Kuala Lumpur Criminal Investigation Department chief Datuk Zainuddin Ahmad, when contacted by Astro Awani, confirmed the incident.
“It is being investigated,” he said.
More details to come.
