Alor Gajah district police chief Supt Arshad Abu said the teenagers were detained as they gathered in front of the house of the birthday girl in Taman Baiduri, Pulau Sebang, at about 5 pm on Saturday (July 10th). 

“The 17-year-old girl who had organised her birthday gathering was issued a RM4,000 compound and all seven teenagers were detained and taken to the Pulau Sebang police station for violating the movement control order SOPs,” he told BERNAMA.

Arshad also urged Malaysians to adhere to the government’s directive to remain at home, adding that action could also be taken against owners of premises who allow gatherings to be held.
