Fresh leads have been uncovered by police regarding the murder of deputy Customs director-general Shaharuddin Ibrahim in 2013 after the arrest of 34 Gang 36 members, reported The Star Online.

The news portal reported that Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar said the members were rounded up during an operation, Ops Cantas Khas.

The raid also saw the seizure of six pistols, one rifle, bullets and 10kg of drugs.

“We believe one of the confiscated weapons has connection to the murder of the Deputy Customs D-G.

“However, we are still running ballistics tests to verify this,” he was quoted as saying.

He also said the gang was also responsible for several high-profile murder cases.

Shaharuddin was shot on April 26, 2013 in Putrajaya.

He was Customs and Internal Tax Unit Division head and his decades of services had earned him the moniker “Mr Clean”.
