IPOH: Seven men were charged at a Sessions Court here with being part of an organised crime gang called the "Geng Nantha Kumar".

The seven are aged between 23 and 35 and were charged under Section 130V(1) of the Penal Code (Act 574) for allegedly being members of the organised criminal group.

The seven - Gunasegaran, Muhammad Firdaus Abdullah, Rahuljeet Singh, P. Kamal Raj, N. Pubalan, S. Kumaran and G.Prem - all nodded their heads after the charges were read out to them individually, but no pleas were recorded.

Six of the accused were represented, while Pubalan did not have a lawyer.

Bail applications requested by few of the lawyers were denied when Deputy Public Prosecutor Rohaiza Abd Rahman argued that the matter was under the jurisdiction of the High Court, when the case was transferred there.

According to the charge sheet, all seven of them were part of an organised crime group called Geng Nantha Kumar between August 2018 and February 2020.

If found guilty of the offence, all face a maximum 20-year jail sentence upon conviction.

The offence is not bailable and judge Norashima Khalid set June 8 for the case's mention.
