'We acted to save under-aged cyclists'

The police stopped a team of more than 50 cyclists in Jerit's ‘Ride for Change' campaign in Rawang yesterday in order to "save" the under-aged cyclists from being exploited.

"We detained them for (taking part in an) illegal procession. Later when we checked their details, 28 were found to be children under the age of 18...clearly this violates the Child Act as some are only 15 years old," said Selangor police chief Khalid Abu Bakar.
