IPD Sentul tidak ditutup
PUTRAJAYA : Hanya kawasan berdekatan kaunter pertanyaan di Ibu Pejabat Polis Daerah (IPD) Sentul ditutup dan bukannya keseluruhan balai berkenaan.
Ketua Polis Negara, Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador, berkata tindakan itu dilakukan selepas polis mendapati seorang wanita yang memakai gelang kuarantin hadir ke balai berkenaan untuk membuat laporan polis.
“Seorang wanita itu diganggu, jadi beliau ke Balai Polis Trafik Sentul untuk buat laporan. Setibanya wanita itu di sana pihak polis dapati dia memakai gelang kuarantin serta ada gejala batuk.
“Pihak polis kemudian memaklumkan perkara berkenaan kepada kakitangan Kementerian Kesihatan dan pihak kementerian meminta kawasan yang dilalui oleh wanita itu ditutup.
“Bagaimanapun operasi balai berjalan seperti biasa, cuma kawasan di kaunter pertanyaan ditutup,” katanya kepada media selepas menghadiri Operasi Bersepadu Khazanah (OBK), di sini, hari ini.
Abdul Hamid berkata, maklumat lanjut mengenai perkara itu akan diumumkan oleh Kementerian Kesihatan petang ini.
Sebelum ini, tular di media sosial mengenai notis yang ditampal di hadapan pagar IPD Sentul mengenai penutupan balai berkenaan.
Menurut notis itu balai polis akan ditutup sementara waktu sehingga satu masa yang akan diumumkan nanti.
