Despite Covid-19 cases at an all-time high, people are still acting recklessly out there. Earlier today (Sunday, 18th July), a party was cut short when police raided an apartment on the 36th floor of a luxury residence in Jalan Pudu.
Apparently, a man had organised a birthday party for his wife and invited over 20 people. As you may know, large gatherings and private parties are still not allowed in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.
The City Criminal Investigations Department (CID) raided the apartment unit around 1am after receiving a tip-off. Out of the 28 people (aged between 21-63) gathered there, 7 men and 4 women were tested positive for drugs.
“Police found ketamine believed to be consumed by some of the guests invited by the husband and friends to the wife. One of the rooms was turned into a dance studio equipped with disco lights,” City CID deputy chief Assistant Commissioner Nasri Mansor was quoted as saying. He also added that condoms were found at the scene, believed to be from some of the partygoers there.
The unit – which had 3 rooms – was rented for RM300 per night. Those arrested were slapped with compounds issued under Section 22 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988, Section 6(1)(c) of the Immigration Act, Section 12(2), and Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.
“Send them to the hospital as a frontliner for at least 1 week. Let them keep the hygiene of the hospital by working as a janitor. This punishment would be better than fine them,” someone suggested. What do you think?
