Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the inspections were the result of 138 cross-border roadblocks conducted throughout the country.
"A total of 93 vehicles were ordered to turn around for cross-border attempts without authorization.
"Among the states that recorded the highest cross-border attempts were Pahang with 38 cases; Malacca (27 cases); and Selangor (24 cases)," he said in a daily press conference here today.
In a similar development, Ismail Sabri said the PDRM-led Compliance Operations Task Force had conducted 76,348 inspections to monitor and enforce compliance with the standard operating procedures (SOP) of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO).
In addition, he added that the PDRM also detained 56 individuals for violating the CMCO directives.
Of these, 46 individuals were remanded while another 10 were released on police bail.
"The PDRM also issued compounds to 88 individuals for various offences under the CMCO.
"No compound was issued for the Aidilfitri visiting. Therefore, I am again reminding the people to abide by the SOP and the rules," he said.
