KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- The Kelantan government’s proposal to implement a midnight curfew for teenagers after midnight has raised some debate.

Many thought that it would help in curbing social ills among teenagers while others believed that there were better ways to tackle juvenile delinquency.

Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) criminologist and psychologist Dr Geshina Ayu Mat Saat said that the curfew should be implemented and enforced on a case by case basis, with exceptions given during emergencies and when it involved studies or family matters.
