Earlier morning yesterday, 1 April, three policemen on duty were assaulted by a group of drunken gangsters in the Jalan Telawi area

The incident has been confirmed by Brickfields OCPD Assistant Commissioner Shahrul Othman, who said that the case was being investigated under Section 148 of the Penal Code for rioting with weapons.

"As of now there have been no arrests but we have identified the suspects," he added.

According to The Star Online, the policemen were assaulted by a group of men who claimed to be members of the Gang 36

The Star Online quoted an unnamed source as saying that an unidentified man who had just left the nearby Echo Club approached the policemen and started a ruckus.

The policemen were in the area investigating an incident reported by six party-goers, who were threatened at gunpoint by drunk men following which they fled the scene.

When the three policemen came to inspect the scene, a man appeared from the Echo Club and shouted at the police, asking them "What’s your problem?", reported NST.

Soon a group of men appeared with sticks and glass bottles and started attacking the trio, while shouting, "you dare to mess with 36”, believed to be referring to Gang 36.

When being attacked, one of the policemen shouted "Police" but it didn't help as the group of men continued to attack the policemen

They only stopped and fled when one of the policemen drew his gun, reported NST.
