The Malaysian police are on the hunt for three men who posed as police officers and went on a speed chase from Singapore to Genting Highlands.

The Kulai police department released a statement saying that they are investigating an incident reported yesterday after receiving footage of a car tailing a driver from Singapore along the North-South Highway near the Sedenak exit in Kulai District, Johor. 

The police are also appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward and assist with investigations.

The video posted by Facebook user Freeman Gan WT, a Malaysian working in Singapore, showed three men wearing face masks, hats and safety vests in a grey sedan that drove up close to the Singapore driver and signaled him to pull over.

The passenger was holding up an LED beacon light on the car’s roof while the man at the back was repeatedly flashing his torchlight.

Gan said the incident happened at around 5:40am while driving his friend to Genting Highlands when he noticed the grey sedan with blue flashing lights following him. He said he initially thought it was the police and was about to pull over but became suspicious.

He then realized they were “fake” and called the police who advised that he not stop and instead drive to the nearest police station. 

He added that he continued to speed up to prevent the sedan from pulling up in front and blocking him.

In an update early this morning, Gan said he is doing fine and has reported the incident to the police.
