Terror unleashed: students targeted in brutal gang assault

Gangsters reportedly infiltrated two secondary schools in Kajang, Selangor, by donning school uniforms, with the intent of attacking students and recruiting them into their secret society.

The victims were six students, aged from 14 to 16 from two schools in Kajang. 

The victims recounted their harrowing experiences at a press conference saying that they were severely beaten for refusing to join a secret society.

The press conference was organized by DAP Selangor Youth (DAPSY) Public Service and Complaints Bureau director Lee Wen Bin and his deputy, Aw Wai Kit, reported Sin Chew Daily. 

Turns out that the secret society in question is ‘Gang 24’, a notorious group whose members have frequently made headlines due to arrests, charges, and convictions for a range of crimes, reported Harian Metro. 

The reported assault and harassment started at the end of last year.

Just last week, three students were accosted by approximately 20 individuals claiming gang affiliation at a hawker centre in Cheras. 

The assailants attacked the victims with chairs, resulting in one victim sustaining head injuries requiring two stitches. 

“We were eating when they suddenly appeared and asked if we wanted to join the secret society. Although bystanders tried to stop them, I was hit on the head with a plastic chair during the chaos,” one of the victims recounted.

Gang members attend victims school

Some of the gang members were students from the same schools as the victims. 

The victims, as reported by China Press, pointed to a Form 5 student as the alleged mastermind behind the assaults.

Despite lodging multiple police reports and providing statements, the victims claimed that no further action had been taken, reported China Press. 

“We are not sure what their motive is. It might be for online gambling or other criminal activities. 

“Maybe they want to show their strength. Many of us can’t be sure of it,” Lee said, as reported by Harian Metro. 

The schools supposedly acknowledged their inability to address the issue, reported China Press. 

Lee stated he intended to file a report with the Kajang Criminal Investigation Department and also requested enhanced police patrols or the deployment of officers outside the affected schools.
