"We are also focusing on the borders of districts and states in Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Selangor.

"We have started since midnight on Wednesday (Oct 14)," he said when contacted by The Star on Wednesday.

Checks revealed that the majority of the people are complying with the conditional MCO, he added.
