DCP Mohd Najib said urine tests were conducted on the over 800 patrons, with 199 testing positive for drugs. Fifty-four of them were women.  

“We also recovered 56 ganja-laced cigarettes, 40 Eramin psychotropic pills, 53 Ecstasy pills and a tube of ketamine on the floor,” he said. 

He said those detained, aged between 19 and 59, would be charged under the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952. 

DCP Mohd Najib said the owner of the discotheque and seven workers were also arrested.
