309 people, including 102 Bangladeshis, have been detained in Malaysia by the immigration department of that country.
They were detained early on Monday (June 21) from several construction sites in Denkil, the capital of Kuala Lumpur. Apart from Bangladesh, the detainees include citizens of Indonesia, Vietnam, India and Myanmar.
The country's immigration department said the detainees were between 20 and 52 years old. They have been charged with violating immigration laws.
The campaign was led by the country's Immigration DG Indira Khairul Jaimi Dawood. 189 immigration officers participated in it.
The DG of Immigration said that raids were conducted on the basis of complaints that work was being carried out in violation of MCO and hygiene rules were not being followed in the said areas.
He said that the detainees will be taken to the Simuni camp to be tested for corona and then further steps will be taken.
