It began as a day of fun and games at a motivational camp on Saturday, 21 January. Unfortunately, nobody was smiling at the end of the day because the participants were arrested by the police as night fell.
39 men made headlines yesterday, 22 January, after they were arrested at 12.30am for stripping naked at the Selesa Hill Homes and Golf Resort in Bentong, Pahang.
The youngsters, aged between 19 to 23, had allegedly bared it all during a group activity organised by a private company at the resort.
Nine representatives, including two women facilitators, have also been detained.
It was revealed that the participants were playing a game within the resort's compound when they started to strip themselves naked
"The participants were involved in a game known as ‘All Out’, where they were required to form a long line by using materials pasted on their bodies," Bentong district police chief Superintendent Mohamad Mansor Mohd Nor was quoted as saying by NST.
"It was during the game that the participants began removing their clothes to form the line, and this continued until they were completely naked," he said.
It was reported that the police received a public complaint at 6.12pm on Saturday about the group of men taking part in the physical activity out in the open.
The individuals arrested were released on bail at 2pm yesterday, 22 January
Mansor said that the police were investigating the group under Section 294 (a) of the Penal Code for indecent exposure.
They could face three months in prison or a fine, or both, if found guilty.
Many netizens have condemned the group involved, particularly the organisers, stressing that such activity has no place in the Malaysian culture
Meanwhile, some opined that the authorities should "stop moral policing" and fight "real crimes" instead
