The Police have arrested seven men, aged between 27 and 50, for their suspected involvement in gang-related activities.

Police were alerted to an online video depicting several men shouting gang-related slogans during a funeral procession along Jalan Bukit Merah. Through extensive ground enquiries and follow-up investigations, officers from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) established the identities of the persons in the said video. In an operation which commenced in the early morning of 3 March 2017, officers conducted simultaneous raids at various locations islandwide, resulting in the arrests.

Investigations against all the suspects are ongoing.

Police take a stern view of gang-related activities and will continue with our tough enforcement efforts and come down hard on those who choose to be associated with gangs.
