PETALING JAYA: Those attempting to silence individuals dedicated towards crime busting such as MyWatch chairman R. Sri Sanjeevan must be quickly and duly dealt with, said Malaysians Against Rape, Assault & Snatch theft founder (Marah) Dave Avran.
“We must act swiftly without fear or favour to arrest the perpetrators who initiated the shooting.
“If the act is meant to silence crime busters, then the perpetrators are sadly mistaken,” he said in a statement yesterday.
He condemned Sanjeevan’s shooting and urged those involved in crime prevention movements to unite and work with the authorities.
He extended Marah’s well-wishes to Sanjeevan for a speedy recovery and offered support to his family.
Avran founded Marah in July last year in response to calls for Malaysians to unite against crime.
Marah, a non-political, non-religious and non-racial movement, campaigns for safer car parks, safer streets, and the right to be safe in and outside homes.
Its Facebook page currently has 4,548 members.
