KUALA LUMPUR: Kuala Lumpur police busted two drug trafficking syndicates with the arrest of four foreigners and seizure of 2.7 kg syabu worth RM282,000 in two raids.

Deputy chief of Kuala Lumpur Narcotics CID, Supt Adnan Azizon said in the first raid on Sunday, police arrested two Pakistanis in the parking area of a shopping mall.

"We seized three transparent plastic packets containing suspected syabu weighing 1.7kg worth RM170,000.

“The two men aged 27 and 28 years work as salesmen at a clothing store," he told a press conference at his office Friday.

The duo entered the country legally in 2008.

Police are investigating whether they are part of a bigger syndicate.

In another raid Thursday, police arrested two Nigerian students, both 27, in a budget hotel in Cheras.

Police seized syabu weighing about 1kg worth RM112,000.

Adnan said the two suspects were students at a language institute here.

"Investigations are being carried out to identify whether they are registered as students as a cover for illegal activity," he said.

The four who were remanded seven days are being investigated under Section 39B of Dangerous Drugs Act 1952. - Bernama
