Fighting a reign of gangland terror

Detectives investigating the assassination of Punchbowl father Ali Eid have linked his death to a spate of underworld turf wars involving three murders, an attempted murder and a kneecapping

Police across three crime squads and five separate strike forces are now working together on the murders, which include:
  • The drug-related murder of tiler Ali Eid, 38, and attempted murder of electrician Mahound Hannouf, 34, on Lumeah Ave, Punchbowl, on November 27
  • The murder of newly patched Comanchero member Faalau Pisu, 23, and the shooting of two other men at a bikie wedding in Canley Vale on November 5
  • The double murders of bikie drug cook Roy Yaghi, 33, and his friend Jamie Grover, 27, in a ute at South Wentworthville on November 30
