Fined more than RM12K

Following the incident, the owners of the vehicles lodged a police report over the damage inflicted at the Kho Hong police station.

The next day, Azmi and his wife were intercepted by Thai tourist police at the Sadao immigration checkpoint as they were returning to Malaysia and taken to the Hat Yai tourist police station.

Anuwat said the vehicle owners initially demanded RM13,000 in compensation but after some discussion, both parties eventually agreed to an amount of RM12,438.
