Six held after former top triad leader bashed

A gang of 10 men bashed a former "dragon head", nicknamed Ko Lo Fat, unconscious as he was taking his wife and two sons to a pet show at the Convention and Exhibition Centre at about 12.30pm, police said. Detectives are investigating whether the attack is linked to infighting between two main groups over leadership of the triad. They are also on alert for possible revenge attacks after the weekend assault.
"[Ko Lo Fat] was punched and kicked for a few minutes. One of the gangsters picked up a plastic sign and clubbed him," an anti-triad officer said. "He was beaten unconscious, but family members were unhurt."
The attackers fled before police arrived. Ko Lo Fat, now a triad faction leader, was taken to Queen Mary Hospital in Pok Fu Lam, where he later regained consciousness. He was said to be stable yesterday.
Police believe the attack could have been a warning rather than an attempt to kill him, as no lethal weapon was used. "It is a traditional triad-style approach. We believe its aim is to teach Ko Lo Fat a lesson and to warn him and his group not to cause any trouble," the officer said.
