KUCHING: The crackdown on gangsters in the state will continue, the new Sarawak Police Commissioner Acting Deputy Comm Mohmad Salleh has pledged. 

“To me, there should be zero tolerance towards gangsterism. I see it as a serious problem and we will tackle it fully,” he told a press conference after officially taking up his post yesterday. 

He pointed out that the anti-gangsterism Ops Cantas Kenyalang, launched in the state early this year, was an ongoing operation and police would continue to identify and take action against anyone involved in gangsterism. 

He also urged the public to come forward with information on gangster-related activities. 

“I hope the public will not just talk behind our backs but will come to see us. They can even meet me personally – my number is 019-6000148,” he added. 

Earlier, Mohmad described his new post as a challenging one as Sarawak had the biggest police contingent with 27 districts statewide. 

Mohmad, who was the deputy police chief in Selangor, took over as the 18th Sarawak Commissioner of Police from DCP Datuk Talib Jamal.
