A squad of police officers yesterday destroyed the outer wall of Galolhu Masodige during a special operation.

The police squad, with their faces  covered with black masks, and demolished the outer wall of Masodige making part of the house visible to people walking down the street.

Police Sub-Inspector Ahmed Shiyam said that police special operation was conducted in relation to the multiple stabbings that occurred in Male’.

He said that two men were arrested yesterday from Masodige.

”Police found sharp objects and weapons that could potentially used for assault and battery when police checked Masodige,” Shiyam said. ”We are checking several places in order to find people who violated laws and to find weapons used in assault.”

Police forced a Minivan News journalist out of the area and disallowed photos to be taken.

  3. Seriously, can someone tell us more about the infamous "Masodige". I pass in-front of this house almost everyday, and I only see the house occupied by youngsters. A couple of times I have seen the famous male gyne Dr. Aseel Jaleel and DRP activist Adeel Jaleel chatting with these youngsters. This flagged some curiosity in my mind.

    Does anyone know to whom this house belongs? and who are these youngsters?

  6. way to go , if just want to do within the law it will never happen . now this is right . come out of the boundaries face with them in same level of force and wipe them from the community without being taken to trail. Or else this can never be controlled.

  9. my question is why only masodige? every month twice police raids masodige, is this the only gang they know? or are the police helping some other gangs by demolishing masodige and the group!? while there are much more dangerous and violent groups in male...community police please don't hide behind the walls .. public needs some answers .. about your special cunning corrupt operations.. where is the media? media needs to find the coward commissioner of police so that general public will know if there's a commissioner of police or not!! so many lives has been gone we need some answers!!

  10. Well the last time police found the weapons from Masodige, the courts could not charge anyone because the police could not find any evidence to link those weapons to a human being(s).

    I hope this time they found the owners or users of these weapons.

    I hope the police learnt a lesson and will take fingerprints and other evidence that can link the weapons to those who use them or own them.

  11. Finally some action that at least looks right. Destroy the gangs with force if our justice system is not willing to do it. May be judges need to wear masks in courts too.

  12. @Police

    Ehem! Excuse me, but the wall is not the criminal. How many times do we need to hear 'masodige' 'masodige'?

    Isn't it high time to level the walls and build a kids park there???

  13. Do whatever it takes to destroy these gangs, even shoot to kill. You can only save Maldives, otherwise vigilante groups will take law into their own hands. Justice will never be served. Justice for me will be injustice for someone else...So go POLICE..just GO

  15. Yeh minivannews or other news media need not be allowed to 'cover' each and every operation that the police conducts. What we only want is safety and security to the people. At least learn to appreciate the efforts by the police.

  16. I just found out that this part of land was sold to one person.

    and these 'tinu' walls were created by a gang & they hang around there since the land owner do not use the land.

  17. Police should arrest Masodi Naseem also for making deals to bring Gitmo detainees without respecting maldivian laws.Also they should arrest Masodi Anni too for become a liar.

  18. If a guy from Masodige declared what Nazim declared, the 11000 strong gathering at the stadium would have silently walked home without a protest.

    accept or not ... still Masodige is more powerful than the police, the army, the judicery, the cabinet, the Gaumy salaamathaabehey committee of the parliament, and all of the above combined.

  19. Masodige gangsters have the full blessing of senior politicians. They are financed well. These gangsters will be free once again. If these thugs can kill others and get away, its better we kill them and get away to keep Male' a safer place.

    I have to admit, I support you on this especially the last sentence of your comment! This is one of those instances where metaphors like "ENOUGH is ENOUGH" is really relevant.

  21. But was it necessary for the police to destrot the wall of the house to catch them? How weird!

    Likes(0)Dislikes(0)
  22. here, some people are supporting the actions of the police and urging them to give criminals a 'taste of thier own medicine' and to 'shoot to kill'. is that not what happened with Evan Naseem? is that not what sparked people to react in the opposite way, in support of the rights of criminals and opposed to police brutality. Isn’t this hypocritical?

  23. Why did the police knock down a wall. Was that out of frustration on not being able to catch someone. When you knock down a tinu wall you are bound to find sharp objects. This is wierd.

  24. well, if they cant charge a human being for the weapons they find (thanks to the fracked up judiciary) this is the least they can do. the house was found guilty.

  26. This is not the first time "Masodige" was raided and people caught red handed.
    In a day or two the suspects are back on the street and their biz as usual.

    I would compliment this cause to police if they are proved guilty in the court with the proper evidence otherwise its back to sq one.

  27. I pass by this place almost every day too.

    The place is frequented by hoodlums, and the 'wall' just happens to be "teenu" (as they call it here) sheets that could easily fall onto passing pedestrians and harm criminally harm them.

    The cops need to be applauded for finally cracking down on malevolent buildings and poor architecture.

    I just wonder, however, how long the walls are going to be in custody.

    😉

    (Just kidding. Good job, cops. Honest)

  28. @special twisted operations

    masodi group has been involved in murder during the fights that took between petral park, buru and little town group. they are vile scum and a threat to society.

    at other ignorant comments about taking down the wall, yes it is a good idea. police do this to places which the gangs use to hang out and launch their operations. it is at these places that they gather and plan. its common throughout the world.

    @police
    why don't you investigate the owner of the land. it is quite strange someone would buy about 150 sq feet of land in male' and just leave it barren when he/she could be earning income from it. i think this is highly suspicious...

  29. i think the only way to crush these gangs in Male' and elsewhere in the country, is to give them a good lesson. for that security forces need to be armed even with shot fire arms too. if needed shoot and kill them all. but we want to be in a safer country. Male' has become much violent than many neighboring countries. lets for example Trivandrum. there any one can walk down the street peacefully, no body is will bother you except patrolling police officers, that also mostly in the night after 9:00pm. we have to establish such strong cultures in our little city too. when we went to school, then education ministry regulations says kids cannot go out of home alone after 9:00pm. if a little boy cough from the street alone with out a guardian alway, "UMBESALEEM", one of the famous officer at NSS, with stand before us and will instruct us to go immediately to our homes. we get really scared and afraid, as soon we see him coming from the one end of the road we get vanished soon. now what happens ? no one even a small primary school boy wouldn't hesitate to yell in front of police man, teacher, parents, and the names go on. there is disrespect to no body. from my observation i can say it during early 1990s. as Majeedhiyya school teacher Mr. Amar Hussain and many other strict teachers were send back to their countries and as education ministry stressed teachers not to punish their students in any way, fighting, arguments and misbehaving became wide spread in the schools. most parents go to work and they also neglect their kids too. many neglect studies and drops out of school and don't go to work while parents keep them feeding. no employment , no good friends, and going farther to Islam brings their behavior in to hooliganism. groups are formed in many congest streets. they start illegal activities including drugs and alcohol dealing, followed by fighting between deferent groups.
    Once Mr. Amar Hussana, the former Majeedhiya teacher and cadet master told me after his retainment, "we need to very carefully look after Majeedhiyya boys. and should always give them proper punishments for what wrongs they do. otherwise, these buggers will come out of school will make a lot of trouble to the society."
    i am not trying to advocate for him but my point is that the government, policymakers, parents have neglected our kids way before than the days we are right now into.
    Satellite TV channels, Internet and and more opening to outside world too brought a lot of influence for our kids.
    action should be taken in many areas. socially, parent level, government level, MP level and policy maker level we need action to tackle this dilemma facing our society.

  30. I really appriciate cops hard and risky work,they are doing a great job in order to protect and serve our community,but we need to give much power to police forces under a law in order police forces to act more effectively against crime, they should be given power to even shoot if neccessary, good job "Maldives Police" even i will be joining Police in the future.
