Malaysia detains 116 Indians, Lankans

Malaysian immigration officials on Tuesday discovered a major human trafficking syndicate when authorities detained 116 Indian and Sri Lankan citizens believed to be heading for Indonesia en route to Australia, official news reports said.

The men and women, aged between seven months and 50 years were staying at an apartment in the Southern State of Johor, said State immigration deputy director Muhammad Ali Abdullah."More than 20 rooms were occupied by the foreigners, believed to be rented by smuggling agents. It is believed that three of the agents were also living at the place but they escaped during the raid," Muhammad Ali said. Some of the foreigners had entered the country a month ago and had been living in the apartment awaiting their journey to Australia, via Indonesia, he said. All of the detainees were sent to an illegal immigrant detention centre in the State pending investigations, the report said.
