Malay Mail

KUALA LUMPUR: The younger brother of the Youth and Sports Ministry's Parliamentary Secretary, S.A. Vigneswaran, was banished for 18 months to Raub, Pahang, for his alleged involvement in gangsterism and violent crimes.

S. Balan Kumaran, 36, also known as Seroja Bala, was banished under the Emergency (Public Order and Prevention of Crime) Ordinance 1969.

The Malay Mail learnt that police obtained the order to restrict the MIC Taman Yamin branch chairman on Thursday. Vigneswaran, the Kota Raja MP, is also the MIC Youth chief.

Balan, the alleged leader of the notorious Gang 24, was detained under the EO following his surrender on June 23 which The Malay Mail reported the following day. He was held for 60 days to facilitate investigations.

He is expected to be served with the order over the weekend and would be sent to Raub, some 200km from his hometown in Klang.

Balan also runs a haulage business and owns several restaurants in Klang.

With the restriction, Balan will have to remain in Raub for the next 18 months and will have to report to the police station daily.

He cannot leave the town without getting written permission from the Pahang police chief.

His problems, however, will not end with the banishment.

The Malay Mail learnt he will be charged at the Klang's magistrate's court on Aug 25 and 26 with two counts of assault and one count of causing grievous hurt.

It is also learnt that the police had applied to detain him for two years at the Simpang Renggam detention centre.

The Internal Security Ministry, however, approved the restriction under Section 4 (1) of the Emergency (Public Order and Prevention of Crime) Ordinance 1969. Hence, the restriction to Raub.

Balan had been on the run for several months before he surrendered in June.

An arrest order under the EO was issued on him on the eve of Deepavali last year.

Following the order, the branch chairman was said to have fled the country, hiding out in India most of the time.

The restriction order on Balan is the third case involving MIC branch chairmen for their alleged involvement in gangsterism and violent crimes.

In late June, the Sungai Dua MIC branch chairman A. Balakrishnan @ Thaddi Bala was sent to Simpang Renggam detention centre for two years under the EO.

He was the alleged leader of Gang 08 which operated in Rawang and the surrounding areas.

Another MIC branch head from Batu Arang, also linked to the same gang, was detained under the same ordinance about the same time.

On Aug 1, MIC Rumah Murah Batu Arang branch chairman S. Muniandy, 36, was charged at the magistrate's court in Kuala Kubu Baru, Selangor, with the murders of Sungai Dua Youth chief S. Thevaraj and his friend, M. Doraisamy.
