SHAH ALAM: Selangor police aim to get tough with parents of children found taking part in mat lajak activities.

State police chief Comm Datuk Mazlan Mansor said youngsters have been detained for using modified bicycles.

“There have been cases in Kajang, Petaling Jaya and more recently, North Klang.

“On Feb 10, while we were conducting Ops Selamat in Pekan Meru, we saw seven teenagers using such bicycles,” he said after witnessing the handing over of duties ceremony of the Selangor Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department chief at state police headquarters.

Supt Azman Shari’at took over the post from acting chief Deputy Supt Sahimi Husin.

Comm Mazlan said the seven teenagers were taken to the North Klang police headquarters.

“We contacted their parents and advised them to stop their children from taking part in such activities. We also seized their bicycles,” he said.

Comm Mazlan added that the procedure in such cases was to hand the children over to their parents and, if the courts decide to return the bicycles, they would be returned to the owners.
