PASIR MAS: People who are found playing in groups in floodwaters in Rantau Panjang and Pasir Mas will be slapped with a RM1,000 compound, said Pasir Mas district police chief Mohamad Roy Suhaimi Sarif.

He said this was among the measures taken to curb the spread of Covid-19, which has shown an upward trend in the state.

The district officer and local authorities had been informed, he said.

“We are concerned that if no action is taken, the people in the state will turn the floods into water carnivals like in previous monsoon seasons,” he told reporters here today.

Every year, Rantau Panjang is likened to a water theme park for the people of Kelantan. In fact, even food stalls are opened around the area during the floods.

He said hawkers who set up stalls around Rantau Panjang would also be subject to stern action.

“We will not compromise with those who violate the regulations, whether gathering in groups or celebrating water festival (floods) this year.

“The local authorities will also seize the traders’ business equipment if they are still adamant about setting up stalls during floods like previous years,” he said. - FMT
