MALAYSIAN police seized 6.2kg of ketamin and halted a syndicate’s attempt to smuggle the drugs into Taiwan. Kosmo! reported the drugs, worth an estimated RM900,000, were seized at the premises of a courier company in Salak Selatan, Kuala Lumpur.

The drugs were found in 154 cendol bowls, and two local men aged 22 and 23 have been arrested.

Federal deputy Narcotics Crime Investigation Department director Deputy Comm Zulkifli Ali said the bowls containing the drugs were covered with another bowl.

The bowls were soldered to one another.

“We believe that the drugs were brought in from another country and were in transit in Malaysia before heading to Taiwan,” he said.
