A 57-year-old grandmother and a heavily pregnant woman were among a number of illegals arrested at a brothel in a raid conducted by the Immigration Department in Johor Bahru, last night.
The two women were also found to be involved in prostitution to support themselves.
The raid was led by Johor Immigration deputy director Khairul Anuar Abu Bakar after several days of surveillance.
Investigations revealed that the brothel located on the third floor of a building on Jalan Sulaiman was frequented by foreigners.
The prostitutes were offering sexual services for 50 ringgit.
Those detained were sent to the Pekan Nenas Detention Depot for further action.
