Cops to step up security outside EMCO areas

KUALA LUMPUR: Police will step up their monitoring operations outside localities placed under the enhanced movement control order following reports that some people were sneaking in and out of these areas.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim said this was being done to prevent intrusion into the localities.

“In Kuala Lumpur, for example, barbed wire has been installed in localities placed under the enhanced MCO as it’s effective in controlling residents’ movements.

“However, there are reports of incidents in which residents try to sneak in and out of the areas.

“So, we find that there is a need to step up monitoring outside the localities to prevent such incidents from recurring,” he told reporters after inspecting a roadblock at the Gombak Toll Plaza here yesterday.

Mazlan was commenting on the incident of a woman who had allegedly sneaked into the Taman Bukit Angkasa People’s Housing Project in Pantai Dalam, which is under the enhanced MCO, by crawling under the barbed wire. Earlier, Brickfields district police chief Asst Comm Anuar Omar was reported to have said that police received a report on the incident after a video recording of the act went viral on social media. — Bernama
