KUANTAN: The owner of Genting Transport Sdn Bhd will have his statement recorded by police regarding its stage bus which plunged into a ravine in Genting Highlands on Wednesday, killing 37 people and injuring 16 others.
Pahang police chief Datuk Sharifuddin Ab Ghani said they had identified the owner of the Kuala Lumpur-registered bus operator and would get his statement including on claims that the ill-fated bus was overloaded.
He said initial investigation showed that the bus was ferrying 52 people, which was more than the 49 maximum number allowed.
