Malaysian woman gets abducted in KL -- and handed over to the police

A viral video of a Malaysian woman seemingly getting kidnapped came with an unexpected twist: The woman was getting delivered to the police. 

The video, taken from a CCTV footage was posted on Facebook, with an accompanying caption seeking the assistance of netizens to locate the victim, with the alleged ‘kidnapping’ taking place outside Regalia Residence, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Malaysia at around 10.21pm on Tuesday night (May 30), reports World of Buzz.

In the video, the woman was seen trying to run away from her assailants, who managed to subdue her and bring her into a car. 

However a report by New Straits Times revealed that the 23-year-old woman wasn’t actually abducted, but brought to a police station instead. 

It turned out that the woman was wanted for theft at her previous workplace, and her former employers had ‘abducted’ her to hand her over to the Gombak Police Station. 

The police have confirmed that the woman is currently under their custody and the case is under investigation.
