A roadside kacang putih seller in Chemor, Perak, was devastated after being served with a RM2,000 compound for failing to adhere to the standard operating procedure, reported Makkal Osai.
K. Thannirmalai, 63, was selling snacks from his motorcycle cart on Wednesday when he was approached by an officer from the Ipoh City Council.
He was cited for several offences, including not having a MySejahtera QR code, a customer logbook, a thermometer and hand sanitiser.
Thannirmalai, who is from Klebang Jaya, said he appealed to the officer for leniency as it was his first day back operating the stall.
He was advised to appeal to the council for a reduction in his compound.
> The daily also reported that an enforcement team of 80 policemen and officers from the Petaling Jaya City Council had demolished a temple in Ara Damansara.
Temple committee chairman Ganesan Velu said the temple, which was set up for estate workers when the area was a plantation, had continued to serve the surrounding communities as the village developed into a township.
