KUALA LUMPUR: Police confirmed that six Malaysians were arrested in Indonesia for allegedly smuggling 37kg of syabu.

They were alerted to the arrest only after Indonesian police de­­tained the suspects, said Federal deputy Narcotics Crime Investiga­tion Department director Deputy Comm Zulkifli Ali.

“This was not a joint operation, which is why we were only in­­form­ed after they were arrested.

“We are now making arrangements to send a team of investigators to Jakarta to question the suspects,” he said yesterday.

Bernama reported of the six being detained on suspicion of smuggling crystal methamphetamine, better known as syabu, aboard a luxury yacht on June 4.
