Police raided more than 89 pubs and massage parlours in the state in the first weeks of the year.
“The women detained were from various countries, including Myanmar, Vietnam and the Philippines.
“We also detained 123 men, who were working as the ‘caretakers’ of the premises,” state police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Shukri Dahlan said at a press conference Thursday.
