According to New Straits Times, the 17-year-old appeared in court in his school uniform and looked calm.

The boy claimed trial when the charges were read to him. For the first count, he’s charged with reckless driving and causing the death of maintenance worker Siouca Chakma, 21, at Jalan Pintasan Semeling at 11.10am on 7 May.

He was also charged with the same offence for causing the death of the second maintenance worker, Akter Kamal Hosen, 33, at the same time and date.

Siouca Chakma died on the spot due to severe head injuries while Akter Kamal Hosen succumbed to his injuries two days later in the hospital.

The teen is charged under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987, which carries a five to 10 years jail term and a fine of up to RM50,000.

The court fixed the bail at RM2,000 for each charge and set 27 July for mention. The boy’s father posted the bail.
