SHAH ALAM: Selangor police are looking at prosecuting 29 members of a secret society for organised crime.

The 29 were arrested in a series of raids following a shooting incident in front of a secondary school in Banting on Sept 29.

The suspects are believed to be part of a secret society known as the Blackjack gang.

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Fadzil Ahmat (pic) said after incident, the Selangor and Bukit Aman CID had conducted a massive sting operation.

"We rounded up 19 suspects believed to be connected to gangsterism activities and organised crimes.

"Further investigations were conducted to take action against the group under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act (Sosma)," he said in a statement on Thursday (Nov 5).

Police then arrested another 10 suspects bringing the total arrests up to 29, he said.

"Investigations papers were referred to the Attorney General's Chambers on Oct 27 for evaluation and further study to prosecute the suspects for involvement in organised crime.

"It is hoped that the successful prosecution of these suspects will curb and eradicate gangsterism activities in Banting as well as in the state," he said.

Prior to the investigation, two men in a car were reported to have been shot by gunmen in front of a secondary school in Banting.

The victims, in an effort to escape, rammed into a group of students and several other cars during the 12.45pm incident on Sept 25.

However, the suspects tailed the victims and fired several shots at the car, which was driven by a bodyguard.

The victims were hit on the chest and other parts of the body and were rushed to the Banting Hospital for treatment.

Police believed the motive behind the attack was a clash between two groups.
