PETALING JAYA: They are foreigners without proper documents who are running a homestay business.
Acting on a tip-off, Immigration officers observed their movements for some eight hours before detaining them shortly before midnight on Thursday.
A total of 28 Bangladeshis were rounded up. Police also seized RM29,000 in cash and documents related to the illegal business.
Immigration director-general Datuk Seri Mustafar Ali said they had received information that the group was running an illegal homestay business at a high-end residence in Kuala Lumpur.
“Checks showed that seven different companies and their agents were operating the homestay business without a valid licence.
“All the workers there also did not have valid passes or permits to work,” he said in a statement, adding that the service was advertised online.
