KUANTAN: Police have arrested four men in connection with the killing of two men in Genting Highlands last month, which is believed to be connected to a power struggle within a loan shark group. 

State Deputy CID chief Supt Mokhtar Mohd Ali said the two victims, Loh Cheng Hye, 42, from Penang, and Ti Chee Khew, 29, from Semenyih, Selangor, were the second-rung seniors of the group. 

He said the third-ranked members had hired gunmen to kill Loh and Ti so that the lower echelon members could be promoted. 

“We have arrested four men and one of them, Teh Teong Hai, 24, was charged in the Bentong magistrate's court on Monday,” Supt Mokhtar said yesterday. 

He said Teh, from Kajang, was charged under Section 109 and Section 302 of the Penal Code with collaboration in the killing of Loh and Ti on June 6. 

Police were looking for the gunman and others involved in the killing, he said. 

Loh and Ti were driving down the Genting Highlands road when they were shot at by a gunman in a taxi. 

Supt Mokhtar said police were looking for several people to help in their investigations. 

They include Tengku Hazrul Shah Tengku Hamid, 28, who is also known as Along Taman, Alang Pandan or Misai, whose last known address was No 1, Seri Bentara, Lengkongan Jalan H, Kampung Pandan Dalam, Kuala Lumpur. 

“We are also looking for four other men in their 20s and 30s by the name of Adik Belut, Midi, Sharon and Sharul or Fendi to assist us in our investigations,” he added. 

Supt Mokhtar said those with information could contact the police at 09-555 222 or ASP Koh Ah Tiam of the Bentong police station at 09-222 2222.
