PETALING JAYA: In the heart of a bustling shopping district in Kuala Lumpur, where haggling vendors share the streets with tourists exploring the city, several shop lots that covertly run as illegal clinics and pharmacies are operating with impunity.

These premises in Jalan Silang – manned by “doctors” from Bangla­desh – have dispensaries containing a range of medicine imported from the South Asian country, understood to be both modern and alternative types.
