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.  

The order was issued by magistrate Adibah Husna Zainal Abidin at a court in Sungai Petani on Friday to give police more time to investigate.  

The 18 suspects are aged between 15 and 17. Their remand order will expire on Monday.  

On Thursday, police obtained a remand order against three former secondary students over their alleged involvement with the gang. Their remand order will expire on Sunday.  

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.
