KUALA LUMPUR: Three more people have come forward alleging they were victims of Datuk R. Sri Sanjeevan, chairman of controversial MyWatch, said Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.
The Inspector-General of Police said the three lodged separate police reports, claiming they were threatened in a similar way to that of the first victim.
â€œWe are still in the midst of investigating the cases.
â€œThe three who lodged the latest police reports will considered as witnesses,â€ Khalid told a press conference after launching the Go to Safety Point initiative on Friday.
Asked whether any action would be taken on the first victim – a 38-year-old illegal gambling operator – Khalid said there is no plan as yet as the operator was also a witness.
â€œOur priority is to find justice in the matter.
â€œNo one is above the law,â€ he said.
Sanjeevan has been remanded to facilitate investigations into an alleged bid to extort â€œprotectionâ€ money from an illegal gambling operator.
Sanjeevan, 31, was alleged to have contacted the operator at about 2pm on Wednesday and threatened to expose the latterâ€™s gambling operation unless he was given protection money.
Sources revealed that the operator had pleaded with Sanjeevan through multiple phone conversations to lower the â€œfeesâ€ as his business was not doing so good.
