KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Police in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor tightened roadblocks at all toll plazas following the enforcement of the movement control order.
Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Azmi Abu Kassim said they would target at least nine roadblocks around the capital, not including Putrajaya.
"Putrajaya has four roadblocks while for Kuala Lumpur, we are targeting at least nine roadblocks and we will begin implementation tomorrow,” he told Bernama Friday (May 7).
On the number of personnel needed, Azmi said this will be considered from time to time as police will receive assistance from other security agencies.
Meanwhile, Selangor police chief Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed said they have implemented 50% to 70% of the roadblocks around Selangor to ensure road users do not try to cross state borders unless they have approval.
"If anyone does not have approval, we will tell them to turn back. Like yesterday, approval was given (to those) who wanted to take their children from boarding schools,” he said. - Bernama
