polis_gun_300PETALING JAYA: The fatal stabbing of a Gang 24 member was followed days later by the cold-blooded shooting of a rival from Gang 36 has virtually turned Klang into a war zone of sorts, prompting Bukit Aman to mobilise their special elite squads there.

Theses include the Special Task Force for Anti-Vice, Gaming and Gangsterism, Special Task Force on Organised Crime, and the Special Tactical Intelligence Narcotics Group who will be working around the clock to bust the gangs, according to a report in the Malay Mail Online.

Several police officers from the criminal investigation department will also be engaged in underground intelligence work to bust gang-related operations under Ops Cantas.

The turf war between Gang 24 and Gang 36 is getting out of hand with both believed to be vying for Banting, Kampung Jawa, and Teluk Panglima Garang.

11 gang members have been put in detention so far, with police on the lookout for 200 others.

Speaking about the operations, South Klang police chief ACP Kamarul Zaman Mamat said 80 officers were placed to man two roadblocks put up last night in Taman Sentosa and Kampung Jawa.

78 people were checked at the roadblocks, and two arrested, although unrelated to the turf war.

“We will continue with roadblocks and follow-up raids according to the intelligence gathered,” said Kamarul explaining that police here have received help from the state and federal police to oversee the roadblocks and checks.”
