PETALING JAYA: A Form Five student was found working at a pub in Bandar Puteri Puchong after school hours.
Her secret came to light when Bukit Aman anti-vice, gambling and secret societies (D7) division officers raided the pub at 12.30am yesterday under the ongoing “Ops Noda” anti-vice operations.
She said that she needed to earn pocket money.
“My parents were divorced when I was three months old. Since then, my grandmother has been looking after me.
“I do not know the whereabouts of my father while my mother is residing in Penang,” she said, adding that it was her second day at work.
The girl denied that she was a GRO, but was merely a “wine promoter”.
However, police suspected that she was also offering sexual services.
Also detained were four GROs, aged between 20 and 30, including a Vietnamese and 25 customers.
One of the clients, aged 35, was said to be so intoxicated that he tried to put up a fight.
The officers had to handcuff him and he is expected to be charged with obstructing policemen on duty.
The others were released after having their statements recorded.
On Sunday, Federal CID deputy director Senior Asst Comm Datuk Abdul Jalil Hassan announced the launch of Ops Noda to rid the Klang Valley of vice-related activities.
