The latest in a string of Perodua Myvi vandalisms reportedly takes place in Johor Bahru, where a white car was torched on Saturday at Danga City Mall, according to the New Straits Times.

Johor Baru Selatan police chief Assistant Commissioner Sulaiman Salleh, who confirmed the 4.15 pm incident, told the English-language daily that the Myvi, parked at basement level one, was partially torched at the rear. The case is being investigated under Section 435 of the Penal Code for mischief by fire or explosive substance, he said.

According to a Johor Fire and Rescue Department (Bomba) spokesman, a fire engine and four firefighters were dispatched to the scene, and they put out the fire in 14 minutes.

Since the fatal May 2 Duta-Ulu Klang Expressway accident, reports of Perodua Myvis being defaced and vandalised have been doing the rounds on social media. Whatever our views are on the unfortunate incident, such vandalism is certainly neither big nor clever.
