PETALING JAYA: Sixty-one foreign women were arrested in two premises in Sri Damansara here on Friday during an anti-vice raid led by Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo.  

The women, believed to be involved in vice activities, were picked up from a budget hotel and a massage parlour in the anti-vice operation that began at 11.30pm. 

The women – 45 Chinese nationals, 10 Thais and six Indonesians – were aged between 17 and 35.  

Five staff from the two outlets were also arrested during the raid. 

Those detained were handed over to the state Immigration Department for further action. 

It was learnt that some of the foreigners did not possess valid work documents while others had overstayed and were working illegally at the two establishments. 

Earlier this month, Dr Khir also led a raiding team in Sunway where 66 foreign women believed to be involved in vice activities were picked up from two premises.
