in Latest

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.

“We are still in the midst of investigating the cases.

“The three who lodged the latest police reports will considered as witnesses,” 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.

“Our priority is to find justice in the matter.

“No one is above the law,” he said.

Sanjeevan has been remanded to facilitate investigations into an alleged bid to extort “protection” 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 latter’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 “fees” as his business was not doing so good.
