Oh dear, what a way to ruin a wedding!
A video of a group of parang-wielding men disrupting a wedding held at Taman Melati Gombak community hall has gone viral. As the video was filmed handheld, it’s rather shaky. However, loud arguments and shoutings can be heard in the background.
The wedding is believed to have taken place on Saturday (1st July). According to a report by NST, the groom told the police that the men had accused him and his friends of making loud noises with their motorcycles. Furthermore, the suspects threw firecrackers into the community hall and barged in with parangs. The group of men allegedly took cash given by guests before destroying a rented Honda superbike.
Convoys are not an uncommon sight during weddings. Also, according to Kosmo!, the groom and his friends made loud noises with their vehicles to indicate the couple’s arrival.
Besides that, Wangsa Maju deputy district police chief Deputy Superintendent Ramli Kasa said the incident involved 20 people and a 32-year-old man was arrested at the scene on the same day. “We are currently tracking down the other men believed to have been involved,” he said.
He also added that the case is being investigated under Section 148 of the Penal Code for possessing weapons at riot.
