A BOLLYWOOD-STYLE vice den showcasing four belly dancers from India has been busted.
The women, who are said to be gorgeous, also offered sexual services.
Harian Metro reported that enforcement officers raided the entertainment outlet in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, and arrested the women for abusing their travel documents.
A patron in his 40s, known only as Lohan, said the women would entertain patrons by singing and dancing between 9pm and 3am.
He said the performances attracted a large number of male clients.
“I understand that many businessmen paid as much as RM500 to spend a night with one of them,” he added.
Federal Territories Ministry secretary-general Datuk Seri Adnan Md Ikhsan said raids were ongoing to curb illegal activities in the city such as prostitution, gambling and drug abuse.
He said 13 Chinese nationals, a Bangladeshi and an Indonesian woman had been arrested for abusing their social visit passes and suspected to be involved in prostitution.
Their employer was also detained for investigations.
> The tabloid also reported that singer Ziana Zain had parted ways with Lisa Aryanti, her manager of 14 years.
Ziana, however, stressed that they remained on good terms.
“Lisa and I are like siblings. It is God’s will that we have reached this stage. I have made other plans, so did Lisa,” she told reporters at the launch of a bridal fashion collection in Kuala Lumpur recently.
Social media was abuzz with speculation about Ziana and Lisa when the singer changed Lisa’s contact details to another person’s on Instagram.
Ziana revealed that she and Lisa had decided to pursue separate careers.
She hoped the public would not make any negative assumptions about their relationship.
“Lisa still keeps in touch with me and will often give me views or assistance,” she said.
