ALOR SETAR: Police have obtained a four-day remand order against 18 students of a secondary school in Sungai Petani near here over their alleged involvement in the Gang 35 secret society.
Kedah police picked up the 21 after photos of the group cutting a cake celebrating an event on May 3, allegedly related to Gang 35, went viral.
They were detained in Sungai Petani for the celebration held on their “special day” (3-5-2017).
Those picked up are being detained to facilitate investigations under Section 52 of the Society Act 1966 for using a triad element in an organisation. The offence carries up to five years’ imprisonment or a fine, not more than RM15,000.
