Two Singaporeans were among 37 people arrested by Kuala Lumpur police in the early hours of Sunday for allegedly abusing drugs. The arrests resulted from a raid of a nightclub in the Malaysian capital.

At 2:45am on March 10, officers, led by Kuala Lumpur police chief Mazlan Lazim, raided the nightclub in Sun Complex, Bukit Bintang, the China Press reported.

Of a total of 81 people inside the club made to take a preliminary test for drugs, 28 men and nine women returned positive results.

Police sniffer dogs detected drug-laced bottled drinks, which were recovered from a private room occupied by four male customers, two of them Singaporean, and four women from China.

The beverage that allegedly contained drugs was believed to have been offered by the nightclub to attract guests. Fifteen employees, 10 Chinese and five Vietnamese, who were working as guest relations officers, were also arrested.

All the arrestees were taken to Kuala Lumpur police headquarters for further investigations under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.
