KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 6): Secret societies have now set their sights on housing construction sites in the suburbs to extort protection money, according to the police.

Bukit Aman Anti-Vice, Gambling and Secret Societies Division (D7) principal assistant director Datuk Rohaimi Md Isa said the hot spots were the suburbs in the Klang Valley, Johor, Penang and Perak.

“The secret societies go for the sites and business premises without optimum security control, and the majority of their victims will comply with their demands because they believe the members of these groups can hurt them or damage their property,” he told Bernama. - Bernama
