Arau district police chief, Supt Nanda Ma’arof said following the video, the two local men surrendered themselves at the Arau Police station at 8.45pm last night.

“A Subaru BRZ car parked in the vicinity of one of the driver’s house in Bintong, six km from here, believed to be used during the daring act, was also seized.

“One of the suspects is the owner of the petrol station and admitted that he had organised the drift event and the other suspect, who is his friend, drove the car,” he said when contacted by Bernama, today.
