Suspect, 34, was offered RM1,200 to transport them from Gua Musang to Gambang, say cops

BESUT – A man’s hope of making quick money was dashed when a Perodua car he was driving with a shipment of 10 irregular migrants was involved in a road crash at Kg Tok Dor near here yesterday and he was arrested by police.

Besut district police chief Abdul Rozak Muhammad said the man was believed to have been offered RM1,200 to transport the migrants from Chiku in Gua Musang, Kelantan, to Gambang, Pahang.

He said the crash occurred at about 7.20am when the man was believed to have fallen asleep behind the wheel and crashed into a Proton Persona car, which was heading in the same direction, causing its driver to lose control of the wheel and then collide with an oncoming Proton Wira car.

Following the crash, he said, the migrants fled, leaving one of them, who was injured, at the scene.

However, three of them were apprehended by villagers and handed over to police, he said in a statement today.

He said police were looking for the remaining six migrants.

The migrants who were arrested, including the injured, are aged between 19 and 47, while the driver, who is 34-years-old, tested positive for drugs.

The car driver, who was also injured in the crash, has previous records for drug-related offences, said Rozak, adding that he and the injured migrant were sent to Besut Hospital for treatment.

He said police seized four pills, believed to be ecstasy pills, and six handphones in the incident.
