Kuala Lumpur, Sept 30 (ANI): In order to catch foreign women providing vice services, police are setting 'rat traps' at the Majestic Heights flats in Paya Terubong.
As part of the trap, police personnel will pose as clients seeking sexual favours to nab the women.
"Such a method is definitely more effective than conducting raids at the flat as these women do not conduct their activities in their units," the Star Online quoted OCPD Supt Gan Kong Meng as telling reporters after a joint raid codenamed Ops Rantau with the Immigration Department and Rela members at the flats.
Supt Gan said that an Indonesian woman, in her 30s, was arrested for not having travel documents or a work permit, adding that over 300 foreigners were screened in the two- hour raid that started at 9pm.
He said that the raid by 70 personnel took place following reports that the flats have become a favourite haunt of locals looking to pick up cheap and easy foreign women.
Supt Gan said that some of the vacant units in the 23-storey blocks have been broken into and turned into prostitution dens. (ANI)
