"A total of 22 women were from Thailand, five each from Vietnam and Indonesia, six from Laos and one from Cambodia.

"We also detained nine men, who worked at the counters of the premises," he said when contacted on Sunday (July 7).

The management of the premises raided, not only employed foreign women without proper permits but also offered sex services to customers, he said.

"The premises operate from 10am till 1am daily and offer service for walk-in customers as well as bookings from WhatsApp.

"They catered mostly to foreigners and regular customers," he said.

SAC Farouk said sex services were priced between RM150 and RM320 per session while massages cost between RM60 and RM120.
