An illegal immigrant thought she could hoodwink her way out of an arrest by pretending to be a Malaysian but all it took was a simple test to know that she was lying.

During the raid at a block of flats in Pudu in Kuala Lumpur, the 20-year-old woman tried her best to convince Immigration officers she was a citizen.

She also tried to distract them by claiming she was pregnant and needed to be sent to hospital at once.

Our Immigration officers, however, were not buying it, the New Straits Times reported.

As she sat on the staircase still claiming she was Malaysian, they sprang a surprise and asked her to sing the national anthem, Negaraku. 

Cornered, the officers arrested her on the spot. 

The woman was among 189 people checked at the flats, and among the 45 illegal immigrants arrested by the department in two separate raids in the city last night.  

The raids were conducted simultaneously at a block of flats in Pudu and an entertainment outlet in Jalan Kia Peng from 10pm to 3am.  

A total of 21 people were held at the flats while the rest were arrested at the entertainment outlet. None had any valid permits.
