Car windscreens smashed during DAP dinner

BAU: The windscreens of 12 cars were smashed in an incident which happened at about 8.30pm near SK Jenny Restaurant in Kampung Sg Pinang here last Saturday.
Owners of the damaged cars were attending a DAP dinner at the restaurant when the ugly incident unfolded.
It was believed that the perpetrators had used hard objects, such as hammers, to smash the windscreens.
Although Rela personnel were there to help control traffic, they did not notice the crime being committed as there were no street lights around the area.
According to a Rela member, they didn’t witness the crime, but they did notice three people running away from the scene.
State DAP secretary and Bandar Kuching MP Chong Chieng Jen said the incident saddened him because such an incident had never happened in past dinners organised by the party.
He said the incident could be labelled a “sabotage” with a strong political undertone.
It was DAP’s first dinner in the Mas Gading constituency.
Chong said a party supporter who operates a car repair workshop had agreed to help the car owners fix their windscreens at a discounted price.
He added that the party would bear half of the cost.
DAP had lodged a police report on the incident yesterday morning.
