Thirty-two compounds issued over MCO violations at Karpal Singh Drive

GEORGE TOWN: A clear Sunday afternoon (May 16) at Karpal Singh Drive saw 32 compounds issued by police to individuals for violating the movement control order (MCO).

A team from the Patani Road police station making their rounds arrived at the popular spot and found a crowd loitering around before nabbing them, and issuing compounds.

Among them were those caught fishing.

The National Security Council (NSC) specified in its latest SOP, that only fishing as a livelihood is allowed.

Sport fishing is prohibited.

With Covid-19 cases on the rise at an alarming rate, police have intensified enforcement by increasing patrols in various places of interest.
