TAMPIN: A 76-year-old man was found beheaded and his aged in-laws and 22-year-ol
d daughter stabbed to death at two houses in a rubber plantation near Kampung Ba
tang Rokan, Gemencheh, yesterday. The decapitated body of Ismail Awang was found
in his in- laws’ house 20m away from his own home together with the bodies of his
in-laws, Atan Daud, 90, and 80-year-old Sufiah Keatas.Ismail’s daughter Siti Khad
ijah was found dead in the family’s house. Her body was the first to be found, by
her 18- year-old sister Siti Mariam, at 3pm.
Siti Mariam then ran to her grandparents’ house and was shocked to find their bodi
es. Both had multiple stab wounds. Atan’s left hand and Sufiah’s right had been seve
red.State police chief Datuk Osman Salleh said police recovered a bloodstained p
arang and knife from the scene. He also said police were now looking for Ismail’s
son Rashidi, 34, who was missing. A villager who was one of the first to arrive
at the scene after Siti Mariam, said the girl, a Form Six student, had told him
her father was supposed to have picked her up from school. When he had not shown
up by 2pm, she called his and Siti Khadijah’s phones but both calls went unanswer
ed. “She then took a bus home and upon entering her house, found her sister sprawl
ed on the floor with a knife still lodged in her chest,” said the villager who dec
lined to be named. He said Siti Mariam then dashed to her grandfather’s house abou
t 20m away to tell him about her sister, and was shocked to find the bodies of h
er grandparents on the floor. He said Siti Mariam called her brother in Seremban
who then alerted his friends in the village to help his sister. “Ismail’s death was
not realised till villagers later found his body (in the grandparents house),” ad
ded the villager. However, it was learnt that Siti Mariam was unable to identify
the body and called her mother who arrived shortly and confirmed that the decea
sed was her father. Maznah Tukimin, 47, who is Siti Mariam’s aunt from Felda Serti
ng Hilir in Jempol, said she received a call from her niece who was in tears, in
forming her of the deaths and urging her to come quickly. A visit to the scene r
evealed that both houses were in a fenced area in a secluded rubber plantation.
The nearest neighbour was about two kilometres away. Osman urged those with info
rmation on Rashidi’s where abouts to contact the nearest police station.

KUANTAN, Sat: A faulty closed-circuit television cameras (CCTV) at a moneychange
r’s outlet here has dampened the police efforts to nab the thieves who had made of
f with RM210,000 cash in various currencies yesterday. Deputy district police ch
ief Superintendent Zulkifli Taha said the police had no concrete clue as there w
ere no witnesses at the scene of the crime while the CCTV system was not functio
ning during the incident. Although the owner claimed that the CCTV was in workin
g condition, police could not retrieve any information from it. “When we arrived
at the scene, the system was switched on but after running through the tape, we
failed to spot any recordings. “We called the person who installed the device but
he too could not explain why there was no recordings in the CCTV.”
Zulkifli said initial investigations revealed that there were more than one susp
ect involved. “This is based on how the robbery had been planned,” he said when cont
acted. He believed that the suspects had been watching the movements at the prem
ises before breaking into it yesterday. Zulkifli said the police forensics team
had already inspected the premises and dusted for fingerprints to help facilitat
e the case. Yesterday, the moneychanger, who returned to his business premises a
fter Friday prayers, found the RM210,000 kept in two black bags inside a glass r
oom had gone missing. The victim, Mohamad Ariff Mohamad Ali when met yesterday,
claimed that the CCTV in his premises was in working condition. “I had just instal
led it a few years ago and would carry out maintenance work regularly as it was
an important device in the shop. “I believe the intruder had either damaged it or
covered the camera lens,” he said. Mohamad Ariff s premises was opened for busines
s yesterday and he also planned to install more CCTV cameras at his shop which a
lso sells groceries, carpets and cloth. Meanwhile, Zulkifli reminded owners who
had installed CCTV at their premises to always ensure the device was in good con

Child Abductions Raise Concern
KUALA LUMPUR: There has been a sixth child abduction case in the span of a few m
onths. Three of them occurred just days apart. Should parents be now concerned,
especially when earlier cases of missing children remain unsolved? In the latest
case on Thursday, a 12-year-old girl managed to escape from a man who had abduc
ted her from Taman Dagang, Ampang, near here. When her captor stopped by the roa
dside in Wangsa Maju nearby a few hours later, the girl, an orphan, sneaked out
of the suspect’s van and escaped. Her abduction occurred just days after the secon
d anniversary of the disappearance of Sharlinie Mohd Nashar. The 5-year-old girl
went missing on Jan 8, 2008 and has not been seen since. Federal Criminal Inves
tigation Department director Datuk Seri Bakri Zinin advised parents to be vigila
nt and aware of the whereabouts of their children at all times. He assured the p
eople that police were taking the matter seriously. “A special task force, headed
by an assistant commissioner of police, is investigating such cases to establish
a pattern or modus operandi. “We are concerned over the number of cases where chi
ldren have been abducted or
sexually assaulted. “These cases are being monitored to ascertain whether the same
suspects were involved,” he told the New Sunday Times. The latest case occurred a
bout 9pm, the girl’s grandmother said. She said the girl, a Year Six pupil, had go
ne to a nearby convenience store in Taman Dagang. “She was walking alone when a va
n driven by a man slowly approached her before stopping. A man with long hair an
d wearing a white T-shirt approached my granddaughterfrom the back.” He caught the
girl from behind and dragged her into the van. She was momentarily stunned but
began struggling to get free. The man is believed to have stuffed a piece of clo
th into her mouth to stop her from screaming. Once he got the girl into the van,
he taped the mouth. “My granddaughter was forced to sit down and the man pulled t
he safety belt across her. She tried to free herself but the suspect pushed her
back down and warned her not to resist.”
The man sped off from the scene, heading towards Wangsa Maju. Later, he stopped
near a guardhouse at a housing area. “When the man got out to walk to the back of
the vehicle, my granddaughter opened the van door and ran away as fast as she co
uld.” Fortunately for her, she recognised the area and searched for a relative who
lived in Jalan Setiawangsa to seek assistance. The victim’s relatives took her to
the nearest police station to lodge a report.
“She has been traumatised by the incident and refuses to leave the house, even to
go to school. Her panic attacks have caused her to suffer a high fever and she i
s now recuperating at home,” the grandmother said. Ampang Jaya police chief Assist
ant Commissioner Abdul Jalil Hassan confirmed the incident but declined to elabo
rate. Last Saturday, a 17-year-old girl thwarted a kidnapping attempt in Ipoh by
kicking her would-be abductor in the groin. SMK Seri Keledang pupil Hew Yong We
n said she was walking to a tuition centre from her home in Bandar Baru Menglemb
u around 4pm when a light-green Perodua Kancil drew up. “There were two men in the
car and one of them offered me a ride as it was drizzling. “When I refused the of
fer, one of them got out of the car and tried to grab my arm.” At this point, she
kicked out, hitting the man in the groin. The man, who was in pain, backed off a
nd drove away. On Monday, a Year Three pupil was abducted in Kampung Serting Ulu
in Batu Kikir,
Bahau but managed to escape. The boy opened the car door and jumped out as the s
uspect was about to get into the driver’s seat. Jempol police chief Superintendent
Mohd Sabri Muhamad said the victim and his 12-year-old sister were on their way
home after going to a shop nearby when a Proton Saga stopped nearby. “The driver
got out and rushed towards them before pushing the boy into the front passenger
seat.” Sabri said the boy’s sister ran away when she saw her brother being abducted.
Last October, an 8-year-old girl was abducted by a man in Kampung Sungai Pinang
, Jalan Kapar, Klang. The victim managed to escape but she had been raped severa
l times by the suspect who took her for a ride. In April last year, a 7-year old
boy was kidnapped in Petaling Jaya and released five days later after his famil
y paid a RM1 million ransom. The boy had been with his mother when four men bund
led him into a car after he was dropped off in front of his kindergarten. In Mar
ch last year, Nurul Nazeha Mohd Zahir, 10, went missing for more than 10 hours.
She failed to return home from school after being abducted by three men in a van
. She was later found unconscious in a drain near the Subang toll plaza. Bakri s
aid it had been reported that a suspect was driving a white van in several child
abduction cases. “So, if the people see a vehicle fitting this description near a
playground or where children are gathered, they should alert the police.”

KUALA LUMPUR: One does not have to be in a dark alley at night to become robbery

light. This is what a 63-year-old woman found out when a machete-brandishing rob

While in the compound, he threatened the victim with the machete and snatched he
r gold chain.The suspect then escaped on a Yamaha 125Z motorcycle, driven by his
accomplice, who kept watch during the incident.
The whole incident was recorded by a closed-circuit television camera in the hou
se compound. Sentul police chief Assistant Commissioner Zakaria Pagan said Mary,
who was unharmed in the incident, could not recognise the robbers, who were bel

and the incident happened very quickly. "The victim only lodged a report yesterd
ay afternoon -- more than 24 hours after the incident, as she claimed she had no
transport to get to the police station. "She also did not call the police follo

was not a crime hot spot as there were hardly any cases reported there.
"I urge the public, especially women, to not jog alone and to not wear jewellery

JERTIH: Terengganu recorded the best crime reduction rate in the country in the

Teenage rape on the rise
2010/SEPTEMBER/19 By Shanti Gunaratnam
The number of rape cases involving teenage girls, especially those between the a
ges of 13 and 15, is on the increase. According to police statistics, the number
of teenagers (18 years old and younger) raped increased from 3,098 in 2007 to 3
,409 in 2008, and 3,626 last year.
KUALA LUMPUR: The number of rape cases involving teenage girls, especially those
between the ages of 13 and 15, is on the rise. According to police statistics,
the number of teenagers (18 years old and younger) raped increased from 3,098 in
2007 to 3,409 in 2008, and 3,626 last year. The majority of those raped were be
tween the ages of 13 and 15 -- 1,409 in 2007, 1,666 in 2008, and 1,767 last year
. As well, the number of cases involving children below the age of 6 reported ra
ped is growing: 26 in 2007, 34 in 2008 and 37 last year. Superintendent Ong Chin
Lan of Bukit Aman s sexual and child abuse investigation division (D11) said ma
ny of the teenagers were raped by other teens they met for the first time. "Some
of the perpetrators were people they met on the Internet or even friends of fri
ends who sent them text messages by phone to meet up in shopping complexes. Many
don t even know the names of the youngsters they have had sex with. "Often, it
is the teenagers parents who force them to lodge police reports. Even though th
e sex is consensual, they are below 16 and thus it constitutes statutory rape. M
any of them have sex on the first date. "These teens are changing physically and
psychologically and want to experience and enjoy sex," she told the New Sunday
Times. Ong said sex education, as well as religious and moral studies were impor
"Many teenage boys don t know the consequences of having sex with an underage gi
rl. They think it s okay, but it is a criminal offence to do so." Those who have
sex with teens under 16 can be charged with statutory rape under Section 376 of
the Penal Code. Those convicted can be jailed a minimum five years or a maximum
30 years, and be caned. Sexologist and consultant psychologist Datuk Dr Mat Saa
t Baki said many of the teenage girls were raped by their peers when they "hung
out" with friends during weekends. "Some rapes were premeditated, while some wer
e crimes of opportunity. Many of the girls I have spoken to said they were raped
despite saying no to their boyfriends or friends." Many of those who have bee
n raped are ashamed and reluctant to lodge police reports because of the stigma
"Their families, too, do not believe them. We have had cases where the parents b
lamed the young girls for getting raped and told them they deserved it," said cr
iminologist Geshina Ayu Mat Saat.Geshina Ayu, who works with many agencies, incl
uding the police, said that out of 10 girls who go out with their boyfriends or
friends, at least two or three would get raped.
"The numbers are actually bigger but many of the cases go unreported. At the end
of the day, it is the victims who bear many psychological scars and develop men
tal and emotional problems, while the boys go scot free and continue raping." Ge
shina Ayu said for every one case that is reported, seven go unreported. The oth
er growing problem in Malaysia, said Mat Saat, is incest involving young boys, a
nd even family friends rape them. What is worrisome, said Mat Saat, was that mot
hers sometimes turned a blind eye to abuses perpetrated by their husbands. "Some
of these women could be financially dependant on their spouses. Others could be
threatened by their husbands. "What many mothers do not realise is that their a
bused children will go on to become abusers themselves if there is no interventi
on." Geshina Ayu said that there isn t any data on how many children were being
sexually abused by parents. "We need to have a database that will help us look i
nto the problem and tackle it. "Incest should not be swept under the carpet." Re

Police arrest 4 women for cheating, robbing housewives 2010/11/04 By Jassmine
PONTIAN: Police have arrested four women for allegedly cheating and robbing hous
ewives of their savings and jewellery since July. They were believed to have at
least 10 cases against them in the district. District police chief Superintenden
t Zahaliman Jamin said the women targeted housewives who were alone at home and
gained entry on the pretext of demonstrating beauty and health products. During
the demonstration, one of the women would excuse herself to use the toilet but i
nstead would ransack the house of valuables.
Zahaliman said that there have been several reports where the victims handed ove
r their jewellery to the suspects who conned them into believing that the produc
ts they were selling would be sent to their house. There was also one case where
the suspects managed to con a housewife into withdrawing her savings from a ban
k before handing the money to them. The suspects were arrested following the mos
t recent case, where a housewife had her jewellery stolen at her house in Kampun
g Kayu Ara Pasong here. Zahaliman said the victim alerted the police and a polic
e patrol team who happened to be in the area arrested the suspects.
Also seized from the suspects were a car, beauty and health products, 10 mobile
phones, 10 pawnshop receipts and several gold chains and bracelets. The suspects
, all from Benut here, have been remanded to facilitate investigation. Read more

Home, safe home
THE days when homes could be left unlocked are gone. And they may never, ever, r
eturn. The sooner people realise and acknowledge this, the safer they will be. T
hat is not to say the average man entrusts the safety of his self and his home t
o any sort of "inherent goodness" of mankind, but any other conscious state othe
r than "alert" when it comes to the safety and security of the home is equivalen
t to slumber. And when more people slumber on security, crime becomes an easy an
d rewarding career choice.
Certainly, authorities like the police must do their job to deter crime and to a
pprehend criminals should crime occur; nothing less is expected of them, and abd
ication of responsibility is not an option. But, it is also the responsibility o
f each person to look after his property; and when house-breaking crimes increas
ingly result in armed-assault, rape and murder, it would be too much of a gamble
to hope that the police are right around the corner just waiting to come to the
Safety is not so much a matter of money thrown at security measures than it is a
bout applying common sense. While it is essential to have good strong external d
oors, bars over windows and padlocks and locks that are not easy to cut or pick,
it is also important that these deterrents are allowed to serve their function.
Doors should be closed and locked at all times. Valuables should not be placed
within sight or easy reach of the windows. If a stranger comes up to the gate or
door, don t open it unless there is clear identification and reasonable justifi
Just as car owners have learnt to adapt their lives and security measures to an
attack from carjackers and Mat Rempit, so, too, should homeowners change their m
indset to apply the same precautions about safety in the home. Assume that someo
ne wants to "carjack" your house. Assume that someone wants to smash your window
s and grab your belongings.
Perhaps it is also time to return to true community living, where neighbours not
only know what each other looks like, but also care enough to look out for one
another. Sure, community living comes with the busybodies; but curtain-twitchers
actually play an essential guardianship role in keeping a neighbourhood safe. A
nd should a crime be committed, it is in the interest of the citizen to make a p
olice report, as bothersome as that may be. Failure to do so serves only to skew
crime statistics because of under-reporting. And if crime is perceived to have

o do anything and could only cry when I was surrounded by two parang-wielding me
n who threatened to kill me if I put up a fight," he said. Salim, who has been w
orking at the station for two years, said the suspects used a hammer to breakthe
glass door to enter the petrol station. "I could not recognise the robbers as t
wo of them wore masks, while the third man had a helmet on. "They took cash, ci
garettes and my handphone before escaping," said Salim. The robbery was recorded

Millionaire confirmed murdered 2010/12/01
By Mazlinda Mahmood
KAPAR: Missing Indian millionaire Allal Kanthan Muthuraja, 35, who was earlier c
lassified as missing, is now confirmed as murdered, said the Kuala Langat distri
ct police in a letter to his wife s lawyer. Allal s wife, S. Usharani, 27, will
return to Malaysia soon to file a civil suit against N. Pathmanabhan, 41, one of
the main suspects in the murder of her husband. Kapar member of parliament S. M
anikavasagam said Usharani made the decision after her lawyer, A. Sivanesan, rec
eived a letter from the Kuala Langat district police headquarters on Monday, con
firming that Allal was murdered. "She will come to Malaysia to file a civil suit
against Pathmanabhan," Mani-kavasagam said at his service centre here yesterday
. In the letter dated Nov 22, Kuala Langat Criminal Investigation Department chi
ef Assistant Superintendent Hussin Zamora said Allal was believed to have been m
urdered at Ladang Ga-dong, Tanjung Sepat, Banting, based on the confessions of s
everal suspects detained. However, police have not made a DNA confirmation as th
ey have yet to receive blood samples from Allal s parents to be compared with bo
ne fragments found at the scene. The police said in the letter that they had not
found any physical evidence that the victim was at Ladang Gadong and that they
were still waiting for DNA results from the Chemistry Department. Allal was repo
rted missing in Banting since January after meeting two lawyer brothers who are
the main suspects in the murder of cosmetics millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya
and her three associates. Usharani lodged a police report on the disappearance
of her husband and his business deal with the two lawyer brothers at the Kuala L
angat district police headquarters on Sept 8. This gave police a breakthrough i
n their investigations into the whereabouts of Sosilawati and her three companio
ns, who were then reported missing.

Business operators live in fear of gangsters
K. Harinderan
RAWANG: Gangsters are harassing business operators in Bandar Country Homes (Gomb
ak) here for protection money. A stall owner who opened his food stall at the m
ain commercial area of the scheme a month ago claimed that he was often harassed
by gangsters who use violent means to collect protection money from him. The st
all owner, who only wanted to be known as SV said: "About 9am on Nov 7, a group
of men from Gang 08 threatened to destroy my stall and kill me if I did not pay
them RM808 every month as protection money." The 24-year-old stall owner tried t
o reason with them by telling them that he had opened his business only two mont
hs ago and that he doesn t have that much money. But this only angered them furt
her. "On their third visit to the stall, the gang leader turned violent and atte
mpted to hack me with a samurai sword in broad daylight. My customers ran for th
eir life as these gangsters had turned on them. Passers-by and other customers w
itnessed all this," said SV. "Then the gang leader and about 20 of his members s
tarted breaking everything in my stall with a piece of wood. Later, I received a
phone call from him where he threatened to murder me if I did not pay up." "I m
anage to escape that day with the help of those in the area. My life is in dange
r, not to mention the lives of my customers. I don t understand why I should pay
them protection money."
Fearing for his life, he lodged a police report at the Rawang police station. SV
has given police photographs and a video footage of the ordeal captured by a cl
osed circuit television camera from the neighbouring lot. Other business owners
in the area have also gone through a similar ordeal and have paid the gangsters
protection money to avoid any backlash. A business owner, who declined to be nam
ed, said most of the operators of stalls and shops here have succumbed to the th
reats. He added that the gang leader has about 50 members and were known to be v
iolent. They were often armed with parangs, samurai swords, pieces of wood and k
nives and were often seen terrorising not only the business operators but member
s of public who patronise the stalls and shops. A businessman who only wants to
be known as JV said: "We are at the mercy of these gangsters in what is supposed
to be a well-developed housing scheme. We live in fear as these gangsters, know
n as Gang 08, do not fear the law.
"They terrorise openly even after some of us have forwarded concrete evidence to
the police."
Gombak police chief ACP Abdul Rahim Abdullah said investigations revealed that t
he complainant was also a member of the gang and had owed the gang leader money.
"Four men believed to be members of the gang were detained and charged on Nov 2
0. They are now out on bail pending trial. "The fight against such crime will co
ntinue and we are serious and will come down hard in such cases," said Rahim.

Dad wants heavier penalty for teens

BATU PAHAT: The father of murder victim Siti Mazni Abdul Rahman, wants police to
expedite investigations into the case. Abdul Rahman Hassan, 40, said the family
had accepted her death, but found it difficult to accept the way she had died.
"She was loving and carefree, and a helpful and responsible sister to her three
siblings," he said yesterday. Rahman said police should take a more serious view
of such murder cases involving teenagers. "Juvenile offenders who commit crimes
like murder and rape should face heavier sentences. Right now they are protecte

ake decisions, but for serious crimes like murder and rape, surely they would be

Rising crime in Bangsar unnerves residents
2010/December/26 By Veena Babulal
The rising spate of crime in Bangsar has prompted residents to request for a mor
e visible police presence.
KUALA LUMPUR: Break-ins, burglaries, snatch thefts, vehicle thefts and vandalism
of vehicles have become increasingly common in Bangsar. Residents claim at leas
t one crime takes place daily in the affluent neighbourhood. A recent burglary a
t the home of a carpet merchant in Jalan Limau Purut has left many residents sha
ken. The robbers, who were armed with an ice pick and a sharp piece of wood, sl
ashed the merchant and badly injured his daughter. One break-in some 500m from t
he merchant s home was reported eight days earlier on Nov 28. The burglars stole
two laptops, a brand new PlayStation3, an LCD monitor, and an engagement ring b
efore escaping through the roof. The victims, in both incidents, believed that t
he thieves had kept watch on their homes prior to the incident.Bukit Bandaraya R
esidents Association secretary Jeswant Singh, who is also a resident in Jalan M
aarof, said the break-ins had made him feel uneasy. "For the first time in more
than 40 years since I moved here, I feel unsafe. "I believe the police are not d
oing enough. The two break-ins happened within a week. "The number of cars stole
n is also increasing and what is alarming is that they happen during the day," h
e said. "There are police patrols in the area but I never see them stopping peop
le to check or asking questions. "Aren t random checks part of their routine?"
A burglary victim here recently said he had waited for about half-an-hour before
the police arrived at the scene of the crime.He said: "The policeman who answer
ed my call was extremely rude and even slammed down the phone twice when I calle
d to check on the status of the complaint. "They could have caught the intruders
if they had reach the scene early as the criminals escaped a few minutes before
the police arrived." When informed that he should have called the police s oper
ations centre instead of 999 for a quick response, he questioned the need for th
e public to be given so many numbers. "There is 999, a police station number, a
direct line for Bukit Aman and so forth. "If there is a crime and we need to wai
t longer for a response, lives could be lost."We seldom see a patrol car or offi
cer on the bike during the day as they usually do the patrolling at night. "We n
eed more police presence, especially during the day, because we hear of many bre
ak-ins and car vandalism during the day," he said, adding that his home was burg
led during the day. Sri Lara Joint Security Services Sdn Bhd, which is in charge
of the security of 673 homes in Bangsar, said that it recorded 23 break-ins, 12
attempted break-ins, four snatch thefts, four car thefts and 16 cases of car va
ndalism in Bangsar. These occurred in Bangsar Baru, Bangsar Park, Lucky Garden a
nd Bangsar Utama.
Meanwhile, in Bukit Bandaraya, six break-ins, one case of car theft, two cases o
f vandalism of car and seven cases of attempted break-in were recorded. A reside
nt, Michael Manickam, said residents want a mobile police beat base in Lorong Ma
arof. He said the residents expressed their hope to have a dialogue session with
the Brickfields police chief, ACP Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid soon.

Car thieves target SmartTAGs, laptops

Over the past three months, cases of cars being broken into have been on the ris
e in Bangsar. Bangsar Utama Pangsapuri Uda, Block 4 Joint Management Body secret
ary Tarun Kumar claimed tha residents had become accustomed to hearing car alarm
s going off at all times of the day. He said that break-ins of vehicles occured
daily opposite the flats in Jalan Bangsar Utama 3. "Previously thieves would ste
al CD players but over the past three or four years, their attention has shifted
to smart TAGs and laptops," Tarun said, adding that the thieves used a thumb dr
ive-like gadget to detect the laptops and smart tags."There have been cases wher
e thieves enter the flats area in broad daylight and break into the cars," he sa
id. However, such cases, he said, have reduced after the fence surrounding the
flats was put up. Bukit Bandaraya Residents Association deputy president Mumtaz
Ali said incidents of car windows being smashed were especially rampant in the
densely populated Jalan Medang Serai area. "Each townhouse has only space for on
e car, so many residents park their family cars outside. "This is an ideal oppor
tunity for thieves." He said the thieves, who targeted laptops, valuables and ca
sh, would also look for car and house keys left in the vehicle. Bangsar Baru Res
idents Association chairman Datuk George Joseph said snatch thefts have declined
in the area."We met the police recently and according to them, there was only o
ne attempted robbery from November to Dec 15. Besides police patrols, the barric
ades put up by City Hall to prevent vehicles in Jalan Telawi from entering Jalan
Terasek 4 and other roads in the area has helped greatly." Sri Lara Joint Secur
ity Services Sdn Bhd has identified TMC, the Telawi streets in Bangsar Baru, Jal
an Medang Serai in Bukit Bandaraya, Jalan Bangsar Utama 3 as well as Jalan Maaro
f as hotspots for crime.Its general manager Brian Raj said more families in the
neighbourhood were hiring security guards for their homes. Meanwhile, Brickfield
s police chief ACP Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid urged residents to call the p
olice if they see any suspicious characters lurking in their areas.
