Family squabbles are such common occurrences and they can start because of very simple things, like who gets the last piece of chicken or what have you not. This family argument took a turn for the worse.

According to Borneo Post, on 10th August in Bau, a 19-year-old wanted to drive his father’s car and asked for the keys, but his father and brother said no. In a rage, he stormed out of the house and threatened to bomb and burn the car.

After a while, he came back to the house holding a can of petroleum and started to douse the car, the house walls and gate before setting it all on fire with a lighter.

The police said the suspect’s brother and brother-in-law tried to stop him but as both of them were standing next to the car, the fire soon spread to their bodies causing burn injuries to the brother’s head, abdomen and both of his arms and legs. The brother-in-law only suffered burns to his left leg.

Their younger sister then called for the Bomba and the commotion also attracted other villagers. They then rushed over to help extinguish the fire.

The victims were sent to the Bau hospital while the teen fled on a motorcycle.

This case is being investigated under Sections 327 and 506 of the Penal Code and Section 7 of the Corrosive, Explosive Substances and Offensive Weapons Act 1958.

Yikes! We are all adults here and there’s nothing that a little discussion cannot solve. Please do not ever resort to violence as it is never a solution and it will create an endless cycle of hatred.
