Play time is over: Some of the foreign women detained during one of the anti-vice raids in Taman Serdang Perdana and Bandar Manjalara.

KUALA LUMPUR: Compounds were issued to 62 patrons of an entertainment outlet for violating the recovery movement control order.

Police also arrested 25 others, including 22 foreign women, following anti-vice raids in Taman Serdang Perdana and Bandar Manjalara on Friday.

Bukit Aman anti-vice, gambling and secret societies division (D7) principal assistant director Senior Asst Comm Mohd Zani Che Din said the women were believed to have been working as prostitutes and guest relation officers.

In the first raid, SAC Mohd Zani said a team of police personnel went to a massage parlour in Serdang Perdana and an entertainment outlet in Bandar Manjalara in an operation which started at 5.20pm on Friday.

“At the massage parlour, we detained three Vietnamese women and six Indonesian women aged between 18 and 29, working as prostitutes.

We also detained a 30-year-old Malaysian man who was the caretaker.

Two Malaysian customers were also issued compounds, ” he said yesterday.

At the entertainment outlet in Bandar Manjalara, SAC Mohd Zani said 13 Vietnamese women aged between 20 and 36 were detained for working as GROs.
