Fadzil Ahmat, Selangor CID chief SAC, has confirmed that the police arrested Jamal at his house in Ampang at around 3 PM after the policemen dressed in plain clothes surrounded the property. He also said that the place that Jamal and his followers conducted a raid in was not an illegal gambling premise but an entertainment outlet. After the police arrested Jamal Yunus, the remaining nine of his followers were then rounded up on Wednesday night and the suspects will remain in police custody until the 6th of February 2017.

After his arrest, Jamal lamented that the entertainment outlet is actually an illegal gambling premise and it is still in operation.
The robbery footage was clearly caught on the CCTV. Furthermore, the CCTV footage showed one of Jamal’s followers performing a lewd act against a woman at the premise. Jamal and his followers also threatened another man in the toilet to surrender his valuable belongings to the group.
