KUCHING: The police already have leads for the on-going investigations into crime activities which are making a come-back in Bintulu.

Head of the police’s Crime Prevention and Community Safety Department, SAC Gan Tian Kee, said investigations would
be intensified to put a stop into such activities and catch the culprits.

“We already have leads in our investigations into activities related to gangsterism,” he said after presenting Bubur Lambuk at the state police headquarters in Jalan Badruddin, here, yesterday.

He told reporters this in response to Bintulu MP Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing’s claim that gangsters were making a comeback in Bintulu.

Tiong said he had information that gangsters were running businesses related to logging, diesel, eggs, transportation, fertiliser and gas cylinders, and called for a massive police crackdown to stop such activities.

Gan said the cases were isolated ones, and that it was incorrect to perceive the town as unsafe.

“However, we will continue to investigate,” he said.

He also told reporters that the police would intensify patrol in housing areas during the coming Hari Raya celebrations.

He urged the residents who would be away during the festival to inform their neighbours and the police of their absence and also to properly lock their houses.

On the distribution of Bubur Lambuk, he said it was part of Malaysian culture to celebrate Hari Raya together with people of other races and religions.
