Biker allegedly injures boy in hit-and-run in M'sia, leaves licence plate behind

A motorcyclist involved in a hit-and-run incident in Malaysia has been urged to surrender to the police.

This comes after a picture of a number plate, believed to have fallen off the motorcycle, was circulated on social media.

The Star reports that a young boy and his mother were allegedly knocked down by a motorcycle near The Strand shopping complex in Kota Damansara.

Facebook user Ash Halip, a friend of the boy's father, uploaded the picture of the victim.

The boy was wrapped in bandages and had a bloodied nose.

The licence plate number of the motorcycle believed to be involved in the crash was found at the scene, and was also posted.

It was widely shared by netizens, many of whom condemned the rider's actions.

Netizens also did a summons check on the license plate number through an SMS service.

This allegedly revealed the rider had four outstanding summonses.

The insurance for the motorcycle is also said to have expired.
