Low Yat brawl: Youths didn't expect issue to be 'blown up', says lawyer
The suggestion came about following last weekend's chaos at the mall after a theft of a handphone turned into a brawl.

KUALA LUMPUR: The suspects allegedly involved in the Low Yat brawl did not expect the issue to be "blown up", according to a lawyer representing an accomplice in the case.

"They don't represent any organisations. They are just youths who sometimes make mistakes," Mohd Khairul Azam Abdul Aziz told a press conference here on Tuesday.

Mohd Khairul also defended his client, claiming that the police's chronology of events was incorrect.

He claimed that the allegations made by Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar against his client were "serious".

Mohd Khairul alleged that his client claimed that there was only one of them who went up to the kiosk instead of two on Saturday at Low Yat Plaza.

"The other people were downstairs," he claimed.

He also said that it was not true that his client went around spreading rumours about the fake phone given to the suspect.
