On Wednesday 10:30am, a maid was believed to have set fire to her employer’s house at Taman Murni Indah, Telaga Daing, and ran away with RM500 cash and two laptop computers.

The 14-year-old Indonesian maid from Palembang, Indonesia, was inside the house when the fire started. Her employee, 40-year-old Intan Zunaidah Abdul Wahab, said she was shocked that her maid could do such a thing.

Intan Zunaidah has a 13-year-old daughter, who was at that time at Sekolah Kebangsaan Sultan Sulaiman II. She said as her daughter was around the same age as the maid, she said they treated her like their own daughter.

Intan Zunaidah’s brother, Zulkarnain, later found the maid with the stolen items at the Kuala Terengganu Municipal Council bus station. She was planning to board a bus to Kuala Lumpur.
