The first line said, “A “Datuk Seri” was among 22 men charged in a Sessions Court here with being members of an organised criminal group, the notorious Gang 24.

The police chief, Chuah Ghee Lye said that Gang 24 is “known for its protection rackets and illegal moneylending.” The men who were arrested ranged from 24 to 55 years old.
He added that “…the men were active members of Gang 24 and arrested during Ops Cantas Mutiara, which was launched on Jan 28 by the Bukit Aman Criminal Investigations Department and Penang Criminal Investigations Department….”
Do you recall….
Last December, Gang 24’s second-in-command, who was also called “Datuk M”, short for Datuk Muda, because he was only 32 years old, had been shot dead by his bodyguard in his car, somewhere near the Penang bridge.
Today’s article said that “Gang 24 became a “super gang” after it merged with the Sio Sam Ong (Three Little Emperors) gang which was behind the slaying of six people in Sungai Petani during a pre-wedding dinner in September 1992.”
