Huzir also said the raid was made following the initial operation of a team of officers and members of the Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation, Gambling and Blackmail Investigation Division (D7) at a condominium in Kajang, Selangor. According to him, during the raid, seven Chinese men and a woman aged 21 to 28 were arrested, and laptops, mobile phones and syndicate daily diaries were also seized.

The results of the inspection of the laptop found that the syndicate was believed to be promoting prostitution and fraud activities for the market in China, and there were applications leading to cryptocurrency transactions. An initial investigation found that the syndicate was believed to have been operating for the past two months and that the detained locals had a role to play in finding a house as the group’s operating centre.
