Police have obtained a four-day remand order on Friday (Oct 19) against the four suspects arrested in connection with the hit-and-run incident in Cyberjaya.

Sepang OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Aziz Ali said police made the first arrest on a 22-year-old Yemeni man at about midnight at Persiaran Putra Permai Selesa, Pusat Bandar Putra Permai in Seri Kembangan.

“We also arrested two Libyan men aged 24 and 20 and a 32-year-old woman from Sabah at Verdi Residence, Symphony Hills in Cyberjaya.

“One of the men arrested admitted to driving the silver Hyundai during the accident,” he said.

All the four detained are students of an international university in Cyberjaya, he added.

The case is classified under Section 41 (1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 for causing death by reckless or dangerous driving.

Wan Amirah, an assistant manager with Unifi, passed away at Hospital Putrajaya at 5am on Thursday (Oct 18).

As viral footage of the Wednesday evening incident continues to rile up Malaysians, the incident has angered Cyberjaya residents, who say rampant reckless driving is a troubling issue in Cyberjaya.

“I cannot… I heard stories, but I can’t (look) at it.

“She had bad internal bleeding in her body,” mStar quoted Wan Alias Wan Ismail saying.

The 66-year-old retiree said his daughter was a quiet person who loved travelling.

“She bought her flight ticket to Finland to see the Northern Lights in January but this will not materialise.

“I have also followed her to Maldives for a holiday. She loved scuba diving,” Wan Alias was quoted as saying.
