Police announced Sunday that they have arrested six out of 34 suspects who are wanted in connection to the recent string of gang violence in capital Male.

While Police confirmed that the people arrested are those on their manhunt list, they did not disclose further information.

There have been five attacks in Male over a fortnight recently in which two young men were killed. Police announced last week Tuesday that 23 people were arrested over gang violence incidents that took place before the murders. However, Mihaaru understands that some of the detainees have been released since.

Police and the government are currently under fire for failing to prevent gang violence. Police are also facing heavy criticism over the lack of arrests concerning the two young men that were killed within a span of just five days.
