Police detained four boys aged 10 to 14 at Jalan Besar, Balik Pulau, Penang on Tuesday night after they were seen for pulling dangerous stunts on their modified bicycles popularly known as mosquito bikes.

According to the New Straits Times,  Penang Southwest Police District Chief Superintendent A. Anbalagan said parents of the boys and the district education department chief were called to the Balik Pulau police station last night.

"Upon discussion, we have agreed to release the boys and issued them summons under Rule 42(1)(a) and Rule 11 under Road Traffic Rules 1959.

"We take such cases seriously and advised them to stop performing dangerous stunts while on their bicycles," he said.

The modified bicycles and acts pulled by the boys looked similar to the ones performed by a group of teenage cyclists in Johor which claimed the life of eight of them in a horrific car accident .

In the Feb 18 incident last year, eight teenagers aged between 13 and 17 were killed while another eight were seriously injured when a Nissan Almera driven by a woman ploughed into the group of 30 to 40 cyclists at Jalan Lingkaran Dalam, Johor Baru, about 3am.
