Party's over: Ten including civil servant nabbed for violating MCO at wild bash

BUTTERWORTH (Bernama): Police have arrested ten individuals including a civil servant for allegedly having a wild party at a rented apartment unit in Kampung Benggali here early Sunday (Feb 14).

Seberang Perai Utara OCPD Asst Comm Noorzainy Mohd Noor said all the suspects, comprising eight men and two women aged between 21 and 31 years old, were nabbed in the 1.10am raid based on police intelligence and tip-offs from the public.

"Investigations found that the group had rented the homestay for three days and two nights for RM300 to hold the wild party and we also found six packets and a bottle of ketum water.

"The group had turned the apartment unit into a discotheque and was blasting music to entertain themselves, ” he told Bernama when contacted Sunday, adding that the police also seized a set of speakers.

He said the group, which include a hospital attendant, traders, factory workers and courier staff, had stayed at the homestay for only one night and their urine test turned out to be negative for drugs.

All of them were compounded RM1,000 for flouting the movement control order and were also remanded for three days to assist investigations under Section 30(3) of the Poisons Act for possessing ketum water. - Bernama
