If you were in Ipoh town recently (27 November), you might have been caught by surprise by the shower of flower petals and strong winds.

It turns out that it was a funeral procession for the owner of the oldest Indian traditional costume shop there.

The funeral procession included a low-flying helicopter scattering flower petals, a motorcade flanked by a few individuals on horses.

Unfortunately, the grand send-off did not please the authorities due to a potential breach in regulations.

According to Malaysiakini, state police chief Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said a police report had been lodged.

Investigations are being carried out to determine if there was any breach of regulations.

Police are also checking whether the organiser had applied permit for the procession.

A procession or parade is not allowed according to the standard operating procedures set by the National Security Council, especially for a funeral procession. The police will also check whether they obtained permission from the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) for the use of the helicopter.
