Malaysian police sets up task force to deal with 'violent' Indian criminals
The number of Indians involved in violent criminal activities has increased so much that Penang police in Malaysia have set up a task force to handle such cases.
State police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi said Indians were involved in 271 cases last year compared to 321 cases to date, which is an increase of 18.5 percent.
"These include 117 unarmed robbery cases and 13 murder cases last year and the number has risen to 158 and 29 respectively this year," the Star quoted Hanafi, as saying.
"The all-Indian task force is led by an ASP who will be assisted by 18 personnel, including two inspectors," he added.
