National U-23 Striker's Car Stolen During Thaipusam, Appeals For M'sians To Help Him Get It Back

In an unfortunate incident yesterday, National U-23 footballer N. Thanabalan's car went missing yesterday.

Yesterday, Thanabalan uploaded a picture of his Blue Proton Iswara which went missing near Batu Caves, at 5am during the Thaipusam celebrations.

In his Facebook posting, Thanabalan asked for help from the public in recovering his car.

"Guys i need a help from all of u.. My car has been stolen yesterday morning at 5am near batu caves.. if anyone get to see this car, please do let me know... A kind request from me," wrote Thanabalan.

New Straits Times reported that Thanabalan was fulfilling his vows during the Thaipusam festival at Batu Caves when he realized that his car was nowhere to be found.

According to mStar, Thanabalan has also filed a police report regarding his missing car, and hoped for the car's return, no matter the condition.

"I know if compared with other cars, I bought that Iswara at a cheap price. But it's not a question of how expensive or cheap it is, it's the sentimental value that is important.

"I see the car as a good luck charm, cause after I bought it, my life changed for the better and my perfomance in the field improved.

Thanabalan, who used to play with Felcra FC, is definitely enjoying a fine run of form with the U-23 National team for the past few months.

Let's hope that Thanabalan manages to find his car in good condition, and that he continues his winning playing form for the sake of the nation.
