KUALA TERENGGANU - Inspector-General of Police Ismail Omar has issued an order for the police to give serious attention to tackling the problem of "mat rempit" (illegal motorcycle racers).
Ini isu lapuk..thee he he tak settle lagi ka? dulu putera Ameno suda kasi tolong?

"Now, policemen are confronted with violence by a group of people who do not respect the law," he told reporters at an Aidilfitri celebration at the Terengganu police headquarters, here Sunday.
He said the aggressiveness of some of these "mat rempit" was a cause for concern.
They did not only disobey regulations but were seen to be getting bolder in violating the law, he added.
Earlier, Ismail visited two injured policemen at the Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital here. He was accompanied by Terengganu police chief Mohd Shukri Dahlan.
Constable Arizan Mohamad, 24, of Sarawak suffered fracture of his left collarbone and his left leg and a head wound which required 10 stitches after a motorcyclist and his pillion rider crashed into him on Sept 15 as they tried to evade the roadblock at Jalan Masjid Zainal Abidin here.
Constable Mohd Hishamudin Shafiee, 23, was injured in the left leg while participating in a "gotong-royong" (self-help) project at the Cabang Tiga police station here on Sept 17.
On another matter, Ismail said the police would not reveal the number of deaths or missing persons linked to the suspects in the Banting murders case until the investigations had been completed.
"I do not want to confirm anything today. The investigations are more important. When we have all the evidence and facts, then we will reveal them," he said when replying to a question.
Cosmetics millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya, 47, her driver Kamaruddin Shamsudin, 44, lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32, and CIMB Bank officer Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, were reported missing on Aug 30 after they had gone to Banting, Selangor, over a land deal.
On Sept 13, police said that the four had been killed, their bodies burnt and the ashes thrown into rivers in the vicinity of Ladang Gadong near Banting.
Police picked up eight suspects, two of them lawyers, to help in the investigations into the case.
Police are also investigating the disappearance of an Indian businessman, A. Muthuraja, 34, who had come to Malaysia on Jan 18, and another businessman, Mohd Shafik Abdullah, 37, who was reported missing in April.
Ismail reminded the media not to write speculative stories on the cases, but to wait for confirmation from the police.
His reminder comes in the wake of reports by the media that two graves had been found in the farm where the Banting murders had allegedly taken place. - Bernama
