38-year-old Ke Jin Hao was shot dead on 20 March by gangsters at a convenience store located in Taman Melodies, Johor Bahru in a suspected act of revenge.
The next day, a group of 20 gangsters then showed up at his funeral and caused a scene, even going as far as overturning his coffin.
The police in Johor are currently investigating the incident.
According to China Press, Ke was at a 24-hour convenience store at about 1 am on 20 March when he was shot to death and fell on his face.
The police arrived at the scene shortly after to commence investigations.
Ke was an alleged gang member and was believed to have been involved in a murder back in 2017.
According to a China Press report from 2020, a 44-year-old man was stabbed at a petrol station before being run over multiple times by a BMW, resulting in his death.
However, the CCTV images were blurry and no one was convicted for the killing, leading to speculation that Ke’s death yesterday was an act of revenge.
A video also emerged online showing the aftermath of the thrashed funeral, claiming that a group of hooligans had gone to the funeral at the deceased’s family home and vandalised the place.
Ke’s coffin was also seen overturned and lying on its side on the floor.
The outside area of the funeral was also messed up, with the gangsters also knocking over the funeral wreaths and banners, as well as destroying the seating area.
The Johor police confirmed the incident and said that a group of about 20 men had caused a commotion at Ke’s funeral on 21 March.
Speaking to the media at a press conference, Chief Commissioner of the Johor Police, Datuk Kamarul Zaman Mamat said that they are trying to identify the suspect responsible for the murder, as well as looking at potential links between the gang members and the murder.
He said that they will investigate the notice of the group of men who caused the commotion and see if it is related to the gangs.
The police chief also added that the case was very shocking and hadn’t been seen in Johor for a very long time.
