Actress and friend detained for biking interstate

GOMBAK: An actress and her friend who flaunt their cycling trip online were arrested for travelling interstate without prior permission.

“On Oct 20, the Gombak police station chief saw a post belonging to the Instagram account holder Belladally that reads: ‘Woohoo Genting Sempah with@diyanabanana!’

“The photo uploaded showed both women biking and it was suspected that the account holder had crossed states without police permission, ” OCPD Asst Comm Arifai Tarawe said in a statement yesterday.

ACP Arifai said investigations showed that the two had left a house in Dutamas before parking their car at a seafood restaurant near Hospital Orang Asli Gombak on Oct 18.

“At around 8.30am, they biked via Jalan Gombak Lama towards Genting Sempah. After biking for about 10km, both of them returned to their car and headed back to Kuala Lumpur.

“They were arrested on Oct 20 after presenting themselves to the police. Their statements have been taken and they were released on police bail, ” he added.

ACP Arifai said investigations were ongoing under Section 269 of the Penal Code and Section 22 (b) of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act.

“We urge people to comply with the SOP under the conditional movement control order to break the chain of Covid-19 infection, ” he added.
