A video showing four women sitting on the ledge outside of an apartment in Johor Bahru has made people shake their heads in disapproval.

According to a video uploaded to Facebook group Anak Johor, the women were seen on the ledge with what appears to be some bottles of drinks.

The video appeared to have been taken by a person in a nearby block.

The caption of the Facebook post wrote that the women were  "chilling" and "getting some fresh air".

Five people arrested

Malaysian media The Star reported that five Indonesian women were arrested after a video of them sitting on the ledge went viral.

Four of them had appeared in the video, and the fifth was a resident of the unit.

The incident was said to have occurred at about 10am on Sunday, July 4, on the sixth floor of a 10-storey building located in Taman Sri Bayu Puteri, Johor.

The suspects are aged 20 to 26, the police said, and background checks revealed that they had no prior criminal records.

The case is being investigated.

The movement of people in Malaysia has been curtailed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Businesses have shuttered and social gatherings frowned upon, although they are still widely believed to take place.
