Discovery of bones of 5 victims: 4 cops linked to Geng 36 arrested

Skeletal remains were found near an abandoned temple at Batu 8, Jalan Sungai Gadut, Sembawang, and Bukit Galena, Jalan Seremban-Mantin.

PETALING JAYA: Four policemen, including a senior officer, have been detained following the discovery of human bone fragments near Senawang, Seremban.

Negeri Sembilan police chief Noor Azam Jamaludin said the policemen, aged between 27 and 41, were believed to be involved with Geng 36 members.

They allegedly planned the murder of five individuals, NST Online reported.

According to him, the policemen were stationed at the Negeri Sembilan and Pahang police headquarters.

He said they were arrested on April 6, following the arrest of 34 secret society members during Ops Khas Hoben 1/2018.

The arrests led police to discover the bone fragments of five individuals believed to have been murdered separately over the past three years.

“We found skeletal remains believed to be of two individuals near an abandoned temple at Batu 8, Jalan Sungai Gadut. Another three skeletal remains were found at Bukit Galena, Jalan Seremban-Mantin,” Azam said.

The murders are believed to be linked to drug trafficking, he added.

He said the officers and the secret society members were being detained for 28 days under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (Sosma).
