MALAYSIA: On the early morning of 10 January, a fire broke out at the residence of Beruas Member of Parliament, Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham, around 3 am, resulting in the destruction of three vehicles.

Authorities discovered a Molotov cocktail at the scene, prompting an investigation to identify the individual responsible.

Comm Datuk Seri Mohd Yusri Hassan Basri, the Perak police chief, cautioned the public against speculation, emphasizing the potential interference it could pose to ongoing police inquiries.

A representative from the Fire and Rescue Department disclosed that the affected vehicles included a Mercedes E300, suffering approximately 80 per cent damage, a Honda CRV sustaining around 5 per cent damage, and a Toyota Hilux also enduring about 5 per cent damage.

Additionally, the porch ceiling and garage roof incurred roughly 10 per cent damage.

The incident is currently under investigation, with the authorities invoking Section 435 of the Penal Code.

Notably, Ngeh had recently stirred controversy by proposing the inclusion of non-Muslims in a special committee on Shariah law.

However, he later retracted this suggestion, as reported by Malay Mail.
