The legendary ‘Kancil Buruk’ which caught the attention of many Malaysians over the years has been impounded by the Police under Section 64 of the Road Transportation Act (APJ) 1987.
Since the car resurfaced last week on social media and went viral, the authorities have been on the lookout for the old, beaten-down car.
According to The Sun, Kuala Lumpur Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department chief ACP Zulkefly Yahya said that a 47-year-old man was driving the yellow car at 1am near Bandar Metropolitan, Kepong when police seized it.
In a statement, Zulkefly said, “Inspections found that the yellow car has no road tax, no roof and its front right tyre is damaged.”
Through the investigations made, it was revealed that the owner of what Malaysian social media users have dubbed, ‘Kancil Legend’ is from Raub, Pahang and is currently homeless.
However, it turns out that there is another ‘Kancil Buruk’ which is green with a broken window and invalid registered number plate owned by the same man which the police have also impounded.
The driver was also issued a compound as he did not own a driving licence and the two Kancil were finally seized as it violated the road law and imposed a threat to others on the road.
