PUCHONG: The Ops Aman Khas, which was carried out in Klang, recently managed to reduce the crime index there, says Selangor police.

Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Hussein Omar Khan said this operation, which was carried out from Jan 15 to Feb 1, involved various elements of the Royal Malaysian Police and other agencies, such as the Malaysian Immigration Department, the National Anti-Drug Agency, the Labor Department, Tenaga Nasional Berhad, the Environment Department, and local authorities.

"Among the elements targeted during this operation were gangsterism, violent crimes and wanted persons.

"We have detained 85 wanted people in two weeks.

"As for the operation at construction sites, 16 locations were raided, while drug dens at five locations were raided, which led to the arrest of 34 drug addicts who are on our (police) wanted list," he told reporters after inaugurating the Road Safety Campaign and Advocacy in conjunction Chinese New Year 2024 at Puchong Selatan Toll Plaza on Monday (Feb 5).

Comm Hussein said the operation also involved raids on immoral activities, smuggling and contraband, which led to the arrest of 1,184 individuals for various offences.

He explained that if the operations were carried out regularly, the crime rate would decrease because these operations are more focused.

"The operation in Klang has ended, and we will go to other districts," he said.

On Sunday, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Razarudin Husain, insisted that police are committed to ensuring that Klang is clean from crime and would not allow it to be likened to Colombia.
