SIBU: A karaoke lounge which was on the police radar following complaints from the public, was found to have special rooms which allow GROs to escape during a raid.

The D7 team from Bukit Aman headed by Supt Zaihairul Idrus conducted a raid codenamed Ops Noda on the three-storey premises at 11pm on Friday on suspicion of employing illegal workers as GROs.

Deputy Home Minister Masir Kujat specially flew here to be with the raiding team.

A total of 61 Chinese women, who were busy entertaining clients, tried to flee but were stopped by the police team. Fifty customers were investigated and were released after police recorded their details.

The team discovered that three VVIP rooms on the third floor had been renovated in such a way that it allowed easy escape for the GROs.

Fifty-five women had valid travelling documents.

Six, who were Chinese nationals aged between 22 and 37, had entered the state illegally.

Masir later told reporters that those with travelling documents, however, had abused their social visit pass to work here.
