KAJANG: A group of 28 hikers had to face the music after the police caught them going up Broga Hill, which is still closed to the public.
Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zaid Hassan said the hikers were aged between 20 and 44 and were caught on Saturday and Sunday (Aug 8 and 9) by police patrolling the area.
"They were all brought to the police station for further action," he said.
ACP Zaid said two of the hikers will be investigated for committing negligent acts to spread dangerous diseases and disobeying orders issued by authorities to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
Twenty-six others were served RM1,000 compounds for breaking recovery movement control order (MCO) rules.
Broga Hill is a popular hiker's destination in Semenyih and remains closed even though hiking has been allowed since June 15.
"We advise against hiking in Broga Hill for as long as it is closed, and action will be taken against anyone who breaks the rules," he said.
