Police report lodged against Shell petrol station for alleged adulterated petrol

During my visit to Taman Melati on Sunday yesterday (8 June 2008), a petty trader by the name of En Anuar Bin Halili of Jalan Air Keroh, Setapak, sought my help to highlight a police report which he had lodged against a Shell petrol station in Wangsa Maju.

The report was made after his motor vehicle had developed engine problems after filling up with petrol at the said petrol station. His report was lodged under Wangsa Maju Report No: 6089/2008.

In the said police report, En Anuar had alleged that the last time he had filled up his motor vehicle with petrol was on 5 June 2008 at approximately 7.15 p.m. at a Shell petrol station in Wangsa Maju. Soon after that his motor vehicle developed engine problems with no power and 'shaking' all the time. He brought his motor vehicle to a mechanic for checking and the mechanic diagnosed that the petrol in his car had been 'mixed with kerosene.'

This is a serious matter and I urge the Ministry of Consumers Affairs and Shell Malaysia to thoroughly investigate this allegation.
