Wild scenes at the funeral of a notorious underworld figure after he was brutally executed in a suburban alleyway – six years after his brother was gunned down in eerily similar circumstances
- Amar Kettule was hit with a spray of bullets on a near William Street in Fairfield in Sydney’s southwest
Several hundred mourners turned out to the funeral of the True King slain leader who was gunned down in cold-blood in front of his girlfriend.
Amar Kettule was hit with a spray of bullets on a side lane near William Street in Fairfield in Sydney’s southwest about 2.40am on Sunday.
Kettule, 34, reportedly extorted money and was high up in the True Kings street gang, with police probing whether a feud with rival DLASTHR gang led to his slaying.
Thousands of heartbroken family members, the community, and police were at St Thomas The Apostle Chaldean and Assyrian Church on Saturday morning to celebrate Kettule’s life.
Men and women alike donned a white shirt with Kettule’s smiling face printed on the front and on the back reading ‘King Ace’.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions only 100 people were allowed in the church as mourners flooded the driverway and the streets remembering Kettule.
