A man wearing a pink quarantine wristband was detained yesterday for allegedly violating the home surveillance order after he was spotted shopping at a supermarket in Bandar Hilir, Melaka.

Melaka Tengah district police chief ACP Afzanizar Ahmad said a team had gone to the premises at 9.30pm, acting on a public tip-off. He said they found the 43-year-old man with his 34-year-old wife.

“Checks found that the man, an OKU (person with hearing disability) cardholder, had been ordered to home quarantine from Sept 30 to Oct 15 after being in close contact with an individual who tested positive for Covid-19.

“The suspect also failed to produce a quarantine order release letter from the health ministry as he has yet to undergo a second Covid-19 test,” he said in a statement today.

Afzanizar said the man was later released on police bail.

The case is being investigated under Section 22 (b) of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988.
