IPOH - Another member of the Mamak Gang has been arrested by the police, bringing the number of arrests on members of the notorious gang to three.

Perak deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk A. Paramasivam said the 31-year-old man, known only as Hanifah, was arrested in his house at Kampung Larut Tin Sambungan in Taiping.

"Acting on a tip-off, we launched an operation to arrest the man," he said, adding the suspect was wanted for a BMW robbery case in Simpang.

Perak police arrested two gang members earlier this month, including the group's 50-year-old mastermind in the state.

Another member of the Mamak Gang was shot dead in Taman Bunga Raya in Kuala Kangsar during a recent operation.
