How unfortunate! According to The Star, an auto spare parts dealer from Sibu had his 4WD hijacked at a petrol kiosk while he was refuelling. He suffered a head injury and scratches on his body while trying to hold on to his car that was being driven away.
Sibu OCPD Asst. Comm Stanley Jonathan Ringgit said that the victim had stopped at the petrol kiosk in Jalan Lanang at around 7.45 pm on Thursday (11th July).
