Police urges to buck up
SUPP Youth Central, Secretary general, Milton Foo calls for more stringent patrolling and crime prevention to make Kuching a safer city.
In a press conference today, Foo said from reports made to the police, there is a surge in arson case in the last one month where three buildings including houses were burned and one was splashed with paint.
He said he was called by the victims to help as there was no lead to the cases reported.
Foo showing images of vandalised cars, building, and houses said fortunately no one was hurt during the criminal activities carried out but it has caused fear to the victims and neighbours.
He said the cases could be done by the same group as the modus operandi appears to be the same. The last four cases recently occurred in BDC, Jalan Ong Kee Hui, Kenny Heights and Taman Everbright.
A house was also splashed with paint and a suspect was caught in a CCTV footage carrying out the crime.
Pointing out that arson with explosive substance is a serious offence under Section 436, Foo said he was made to understand that the police is facing shortage of manpower but said that is not the excuse for the rampant crimes in Kuching.
He said the Home Ministry should look into such problem and also called MP Kuching to voice out the security aspect in Parliament. For his part, he said he will meet up with KPD Kuching to have a dialogue over security in Kuching.
