SEREMBAN: Fifteen youths have been detained by police for violating the interstate travel ban by riding in from Kuala Lumpur for a meal at a restaurant here.
The motorcyclists, aged from 18 to 34, were also found to have been riding recklessly on the way to Seremban via the Kajang-Seremban Expressway on Wednesday (April 28) night, reported Sinar Harian.
Bukit Aman traffic and enforcement department deputy director Senior Asst Comm Datuk Mohd Nadzri Hussain said the suspects would be investigated for violating the interstate travel ban as well as reckless and dangerous riding.
"They not only crossed into Negri Sembilan, but they also violated traffic rules by performing dangerous stunts while riding.
"The youths, who are members of three gangs, could be clearly seen zig-zagging on the road and doing 'Superman' stunts while racing," he told Sinar Harian.
SAC Mohd Nadzri said the youths would be charged under Section 42(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 for reckless and dangerous riding.
Offenders can be fined between RM5,000 and RM15,000 and jailed up to five years.
The youths would also be issued with compounds for violating the ban on interstate travel.
"We have also seized their motorcycles and sent the youths to the Nilai police station for further action," he added.
