A total of 154 individuals were indicted at the Kuala Kubu Bharu Courthouse, near here, yesterday for violating the order of the Movement Control Command (CPP) at a settlement in Ulu Rening, Batang Kali, Hulu Selangor.
Selangor Criminal Investigation Department chief Datuk Fadzil Ahmat said all of them were believed to have gathered at one place in the area.
“Yesterday (yesterday) we detained 238 individuals at the settlement, out of which we claimed 154 individuals.
“The rest are children and babies who just follow their families will not be charged,” he said when contacted yesterday.
Commenting on the settlement, Fadzil said he was currently checking the status of the land with the District Land Office to identify the landowner.
