SINGAPORE - A second incident in as many weeks of a group of men shouting gang slogans during a funeral procession has been captured on video, surfacing online on Tuesday (March 7).

The 15sec video, which was posted by All Singapore Stuff on Facebook and credited to a reader called "Max", shows a big group of men repeatedly chanting "Hai Lok San" while walking down a road during a funeral procession.

"Hai Lok San", also known as the 108 gang, is an infamous secret society in Singapore.

The post on All Singapore Stuff's page did not indicate where and when this incident happened.

When contacted, the Singapore Police Force said they were aware of the video and are currently looking into the matter.

 

"We take a stern view of gang-related activities and will continue our tough enforcement effort and come down hard on those who choose to be associated with gangs," the police said in their statement.

The copycat incident comes less than a week after seven men were arrested in simultaneous raids around Singapore on March 3 for their involvement in gang-related activities.

The police had taken action two days after a similar video clip had appeared online showing the men shouting "Sah Lak Kau", or "369" in Hokkien, during a funeral procession along Jalan Bukit Merah.

"369" is the name of another gang in Singapore.
