Cops wipe out ‘Gang 21’
KUALA LUMPUR: Police have wiped out the “Gang 21” secret society in Kuala Selangor with the arrest on Monday night of 12 members including their leader and his deputy in a special Ops Cantas operation known as “Operation Firefly”.
In the 15-hour operation, police nabbed the gang’s number two man who is alleged to have been involved in the murders of two men in Kuala Selangor in 2002.
Deputy director of Bukit Aman’s anti-vice, gaming and secret society division (D7) Datuk Rohaimi Isa said all the individuals, aged between 20 and 46, were caught after police had monitored their movements for about three months.
“The operation involved 20 police officers and 48 men from the D7 headed by ACP Amir Rashid,” he said.
