Two Form 3 girls were among eight individuals detained by the police for holding a private party at a soho unit in I-City near Shah Alam early this morning.

Shah Alam district police chief ACP Baharudin Mat Taib said the arrest followed complaints by the public that a rented unit was having group activities.

“They comprised five men and three women aged 15 and 23 with the two teenage girls still studying at a secondary school in Klang,” he said in a statement today.

“They were compounded RM4,000 each for failing to comply with the SOPs of the movement control order.”

None of the suspects had previous criminal records.

However, Baharudin said screening tests showed that seven of them were positive for drugs such as amphetamine, methamphetamine and benzo.

“The Shah Alam Magistrate’s Court today allowed the seven individuals to be remanded under Section 117 of the Criminal Code Procedure for three days. The case is being investigated under Section 15 (1) (a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act,” he said.
