KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): People who have gone back to their hometowns to celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri by slipping across state lines will not escape the law, says Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Mazlan Mansor.
He said police would take steps to ensure that the matter is not taken lightly.
"Although they slipped through the roadblocks and reached their hometowns, the police will handle this matter," Mazlan told reporters when met after inspecting the roadblock at the Jalan Duta toll plaza here on Saturday (May 23).
He said the government had issued a stern warning regarding the ban on interstate travel but there were still people who ignored it.
"Wait for police action because they have to return to the city after the festive season," he said.
Earlier, a Bernama check at the toll plaza found the flow of traffic had doubled at noon compared to the morning.
From 9am until noon, many drivers were ordered to turn back when they did not have valid documents to travel across states. – Bernama
