Police issued compounds of RM1,000 each to 17 individuals for violating SOPs during the movement control order by holding a birthday celebration at a villa in Ulu Melaka, Langkawi, early yesterday.

Langkawi district police chief ACP Shariman Ashari said a team tasked with patrolling the area to ensure SOP compliance had noticed a large number of vehicles and noise coming from the villa at 1am.

“Upon inspection, we found 13 local men and four women aged between 18 and 32 in the villa.

“The group who live around the island had rented the villa to hold a birthday party for one of their friends. However, during the inspection, the birthday boy was not at the scene because he had returned to his house for a while,” he said in a statement last night.

Shariman said those arrested were taken to the Kuah police station for documentation and issued compounds before their release.

“All of them tested negative for drugs,” he said.
