Their car, a white a white Toyota Mark X, was found abandoned in a parking lot about 500 meters from the club the following day.

A detective privy to the investigations said the four were on the police radar, adding that three other gang members “disappeared” last year under similar circumstances.

“The four are suspected to belong to a seven-member gang linked to motor vehicle theft, extortion and kidnapping. Three of their colleagues went missing last year. It’s a high voltage case,” said the detective.
