PETALING JAYA: The police have arrested 17 people as investigations into a drug turf war between rival gangs in Taman Juara Jaya, Cheras continues.

"Up until now, 17 people have been arrested. All have been remanded and there are those whose remands will be extended," said Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Fadzil Ahmat in a text message to the media on Wednesday (Feb 3).

He added that a police sweep under Ops Cantas was initiated by the Selangor Criminal Investigations Department.

"Other CIDs in the Selangor contingent have also been mobilised. At the same time, the Narcotics Criminal Investigation Department has also been mobilised under this Ops Cantas," he added.

Previously, SAC Fadzil had said that the Gang 08 Sungai Besi Indah, Serdang led by Sara 08 and his right-hand man Rajie 5000, were involved in the clash with Gang 36 Bukit Belimbing, Kajang, led by a man named Tan who is of Chinese and Indian descent.

Two people were sent to the hospital after suffering injuries during the fight.

The fight, which was caught on video, showed a group of armed men fleeing the scene and getting into vehicles.

A black pick-up truck is then seen ramming into a white car before ramming into a red car.

A man can then be heard shouting to witnesses warning them against taking pictures.

Those with information on the case should contact Asst Supt Mohd Radzee Jamudi at 019-665 5811.
