Six men who placed altars at a construction site in Tuen Mun in an alleged attempt at extortion were arrested by anti-triad officers yesterday.

Police said all work had ground to a halt at the site in Fuk Hang Tsuen Road because workers were afraid to remove the altars after being told they would disturb the fung shui. Officers later returned to the site to remove the altars.
