Malaysians beat up suspected kidnappers and set their van on fire before handing them over to police

Suspected kidnappers grab a daughter of a curtain factory owner in Selangor, Malaysia but let her go after they were pursued by a mob who beat them up and set fire to their van on Tuesday (Jan 10).

The woman who was in her 20s was grabbed near her house at around 5pm that day and her shouts attracted the attention of motorists in the area.

According to Sin Chew Daily via The Straits Times, the motorists started chasing the kidnappers' white van using their own vehicles.

The suspects panicked before throwing the woman out of their vehicle. 

They tried to get away but frantically bumped into several other vehicles in the process.

Eventually, the van crashed into a large tree.

The pursuers dragged two men from the van and beat them up before handing them over to the police. 

Sungai Buloh Police detained the two men, aged 25 and 35, and found a parang, masks, gloves and rope in the van. 

The van was believed to have been stolen and was set on fire by a furious crowd afterwards.
