More arrested in probe into paid sex videos on Telegram


KLANG: Six women have been arrested as part of the police’s probe into the case of sex videos peddled for profit.

Bukit Aman CID director Comm Datuk Seri Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain said that the arrests were part of their second phase of investigations.

The women, aged 21 to 36, were arrested last week.

“Investigations showed that the six had engaged in sexual activities willingly, with no coercion. There were also those who did it for profit.

“All have been remanded to assist investigations,” he told reporters after a townhall meeting at the Hokkien Association building here yesterday.

Previously, Comm Mohd Shuhaily said the pornographic videos were sold via three channels on Telegram since last July.

It was found that 2,051 subscribers paid RM100 per month for a 200-video package, while 622 subscribed to a 13-video package for RM20 per month.

The police also found that subscribers comprised both men and women, some of whom were professionals such as doctors and entrepreneurs.

A father of three, infamously known as “Hot Daddy”, and his two girlfriends were charged with offering sexual services on X.

Hasli Ikhwan Arif Zul Hasli, 32, Norhidayah Mahadi, 24, and Norshazrina Md Zamri, 27, pleaded not guilty before Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court judge Siti Aminah Ghazali on Jan 26.

Separately, the police arrested 285 foreigners following large-scale anti-human trafficking operations nationwide on Jan 23 and Jan 24.

A total of 42 raids were conducted, with 64 victims rescued, including four disabled people.

About 30 of the victims were children.
