SHAH ALAM: The Selangor Immigration Department rounded-up 186 foreign workers during a raid while they were fast asleep at the Alam Hijau construction site in Section 22 here early today.

Its Director, Omran Omar, said 41 of them, including seven women, were detained for various offences under the Immigration Act in the operation which was conducted at 12.30a.m.

“They woke up in a shock to find the presence of the Immigration authorities and ran helter-skelter to escape arrest.

“However, nothing untoward happened and the operation ended about 3.00 a.m.,” he said in a statement here today.

“Eight of them were detained for not having valid work permit, while eight others were detained for over-staying,” he added.
