Ne­ti­zens ex­press fury on teenager’s FB page

New Straits Times - - News -

BUKIT MERTAJAM: Fu r i o u s Malaysians have taken to Ng Pei Ven’s Face­book page to con­demn her.

The 19-year-old, whose act of driv­ing against traf­fic along the North-South Ex­press­way on Tues­day claimed a life, has be­come the prime tar­get of an­gry Ne­ti­zens.

Soon af­ter the in­ci­dent on Tue­day, Ng’s Face­book page — Cindy Ng — was spammed with all sorts of posts, with some la­belling her a “mur­derer”.

They also com­mented on her pho­tos as well as time­line, mostly telling her “to die” since she com­mit­ted the al­leged crime.

Checks by the New Straits Times yesterday, how­ever, re­vealed that her Face­book page, which used to be filled with posts of her in­volve­ment in mod­el­ling ac­tiv­i­ties and beauty pageants, had been re­moved.

A pho­to­graph of her sit­ting on a su­per­bike and her par­tic­i­pa­tion in a beauty pageant last year, which had since been widely cir­cu­lated, were all re­moved. Other ear­lier posts had also been deleted.

Since then, so­cial me­dia users have turned their at­ten­tion to com­ment­ing on news links re­lated to Ng.

A Face­book user, Karl Bazi, wrote “Mur­derer: Death Penalty” while an­other per­son, Abdullah Hakim, wrote: “Death penalty or jail for­ever.”

How­ever, there were also those who said the teenager needed psy­cho­log­i­cal help.

Re­ports that Ng owned a dis­abled per­son’s card also did not sit well with Ne­ti­zens.

Se­berang Prai Ten­gah district po­lice chief As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner Nik Ros Azhan Nik Ab­dul Hamid con­firmed that the woman was in­deed dis­abled.

“She is a slow learner... it is true. Let us in­ves­ti­gate this thor­oughly.

“Peo­ple should not jump to con­clu­sions,” he said.
