PETALING JAYA: More roadblocks will be set up in Selangor as the state gears up for the movement control order in six districts from Thursday (May 6).
State police chief Comm Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed said the increase throughout the state is meant to stop unauthorised interstate and interdistrict movements, especially in the lead up to the Hari Raya Aidilfitri holidays.
"We will also be patrolling all bazaars, shopping centres and public places to ensure standard operating procedure compliance in Selangor," he said in a statement on Wednesday (May 5).
