KUALA LUMPUR: A foreign man and a local woman were arrested for using fake interstate travel permit documents.

Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Anuar Omar said the first case was detected at around 7.50am on Monday (May 10) at the KL Sentral KTM arrival hall.

"Police checked a foreigner who claimed to have returned from Langkawi.

"When they checked his interstate travel document, the serial number was found to be false," he said.

The letter also stated that the permit holder must be back in Nilai, Negri Sembilan, on May 8, he added.

ACP Anuar said further checks revealed that the 26-year-old man had boarded the train from Sungkai, Perak, at about 6am and arrived at KL Sentral at 7.46am.

"His interstate travel form had the Nilai police station stamp but further checks showed that it had not been registered at the station."

He added that the suspect had left home in Nilai for work in Langkawi on April 24 and was supposed to be back on May 8.

Meanwhile, at around 3.40pm on the same day, a woman went to the Pantai police station to apply for an interstate travel permit to Terengganu, claiming that her mother was in critical condition at a hospital.

"She handed over hospital documents which were found to be false when cross-referenced with the hospital," said ACP Anuar.

The 30-year-old jobless suspect, he added, admitted to falsifying documents at her sister's house in Petaling Jaya the night before.

"She also admitted to making the false documents after her application was rejected at the Seapark police station on May 9," he said.

He urged the public to comply with the movement control order and not abuse interstate travel permits.

Those with information on such activities should contact the Brickfields police hotline at 03-2297 9222, or go to the nearest police station.
