After two weeks of manhunt, Datuk Seri Liow Soon Hee surrendered himself to Brickfields police headquarters at around 3pm Friday (May 17), The Sun Daily reported today.
Liow is the same “Datuk Sri” that injured two Rela police back in a temple two years back and became a public enemy nationwide.
This time, the police wanted him to help assist an incident on May 3, where a group of 60 men rioted an entertainment outlet in Old Klang Road and caused damaged up to RM200,000.
A viral video and photos circulated on the internet showed the group were dashing outside of Scott Garden, holding wooden and metal clubs. It is previously learned that the attack on the entertainment outlet was because of jealousy over a girl.
Liow is one of four people wanted by the police. The Star reported a total of 15 men have been arrested in connection to the case.
“We took (Liow’s) statement and interrogated him before releasing him on bail.
“This brings the total number of arrests in connection with the case to 15. We are still tracking down several other witnesses and suspects connected to the case,” City Deputy CID chief Asst Comm Alzafny Ahmad told the daily today (May 19).
On that hectic night, the investigation also found that an earlier fight occurred in a pub in Cheras and at 9.20pm, the fight erupted in Scott Garden.
ACP Alzafny said another wanted man, who is a bodyguard, has also surrendered to the police.
“We are now waiting for another person of interest linked to this case to come back from overseas, and he is expected to surrender once he is back,” he said.
Liow was charged three counts of causing grievous hurt back in 2017 when he assaulted two Rela police with forceful kicks on their head. Since the controversy, media have connected him to a Taiwan gangster society, infamous Chinese businessman Zhang Jian, former Cabinet ministers and also a police top brass.
