IPOH: The police have arrested 10 men believed to have been involved in a spate of crimes, including murder.

Perak police chief Comm Datuk Razarudin Husain said the suspects, aged between 27 and 50 years old, were part of a group and were arrested in several locations here and in Batu Gajah on March 13.

"We launched 'Ops Cantas Subaru Kanthan' in October last year, following a spate of serious crime cases between 2015 and 2019.

"From our investigations together with Bukit Aman's D14 criminal investigation department, we identified a group of individuals, which was led by an unknown mastermind," he said in a statement Tuesday (April 7).

"Apart from murder, they are also believed to be involved in fights that have caused grievious injuries and vandalism on properties.

"We then launched an operation on March 13 and arrested the 10 men," he added.

Comm Razarudin said the police have used the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act to stop the group's rampant crime activities.

"All suspects are being remanded for 28 days from March 13 until Apr 9.

"All have previous criminal records involving drugs," he said, adding that the police are still on the manhunt for several others.

Comm Razarudin said the 10 men will be charged at the Sessions Court here Wednesday (April 8).

"The investigations, which were under Section 130V Chapter VI B of the Penal Code, have been completed and we've referred it to the Attorney-General's Chambers on Monday (April 6).

"If convicted, they can be jailed for a maximum of 20 years," he said.

"We are serious when it comes to crime and will take stern action against any groups that disturbs the safety of the people," he added.
