PETALING JAYA: The police have arrested 13 people here on Sunday (March 29) and Monday (March 30) for violating the movement control order (MCO).

Speaking to the media, district OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said that seven incidents led to the arrests, three of which were at road blocks along the Federal Highway and near the Subang toll gate entering Petaling Jaya.

He added that another of the arrests was made in Ara Damansara at 8.50pm on Sunday, when two men ignored instructions to return home when spotted along Jalan Masjid Kayu.
