PUTRAJAYA: Two Immigration Department officers were allegedly assaulted by two male Chinese nationals at the KL International Airport (KLIA) during a scuffle.
The two men, along with another female Chinese national, had been issued the Not To Land (NTL) order and were being held at KLIA's holding area for foreign visitors around 12.30am on Saturday (Aug 31).
The incident started because the two men were hanging around at the female designated section of the holding area instead of the male section.
Spotting this, the two Immigration officers asked the men to leave and go to the appropriate section.
However, the two men raised their voices and acted aggressively before they allegedly punched the two officers and got into a scuffle.
Immigration director-general Datuk Khairul Dzaimee Daud said other Immigration officers rushed in and broke up the scuffle.
"Both officers suffered scratches and bruises.
"All three of the Chinese nationals have been deported and blacklisted from entering Malaysia," he said on Monday (Sept 2), adding that the two officers had also lodged a police report over the incident.
Khairul Dzaimee said the three foreigners were issued the NTL as they did not meet the necessary requirements and their reasons for entering the country was suspicious.
