6 KLIA Customs men with alleged links to gang, held
KUALA LUMPUR: Federal police arrested six Kuala Lumpur International Airport Customs officers yesterday as the crackdown on enforcement officers aiding the notorious Gang 360 Devan continues.
The six were detained at 3pm by federal Criminal Investigation Department (CID) policemen under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (Sosma) for allegedly helping the gang to traffick drugs.
Under the provisions of Sosma, the six will be held for 28 days to facilitate investigations. They were taken to the Shah Alam police headquarters lock-up.
Federal CID director Datuk Seri Mohmad Salleh confirmed the arrests.
In May, CID policemen arrested 16 Narcotics Department policemen from Bukit Aman, including several senior officers, who were believed to have been in cahoots with the gang, a splinter faction of Gang 36.
The Narcotics policemen were said to have helped gang members escape dragnets and prosecution, by losing evidence or changing the results of urine tests.
Gang 360 Devan is one of the main focuses of the police crack down on gangs. Many gang members have been arrested and charged.
