Imagine that, a Bangladeshi known as "Abang Bangla" was running a human trafficking ring with a Malaysian here in our country.

The Immigration Department recently nabbed the 43-year-old together with the Malaysian man during a operation early today.

Immigration director-general Datuk Seri Mustafar Ali said after weeks of surveillance, his officers raided a house in Shah Alam and found 50 Bangladeshis occupying it.

“These people, mostly blacklisted by the department, had travelled from Dhaka to Jakarta, Indonesia and then took a boat to enter Malaysia illegally.

According to The Star, Mustafar said some of the Bangladeshis, aged between 20 and 45, could not fly into Malaysia as they were blacklisted.

“They were here previously and we caught them for working illegally or with expired permits. That's why they were blacklisted and could not enter Malaysia through official means,” he added.

Cash amounting to RM13,000 was also seized at the scene.
