162 migrant workers including Bangladeshis have been detained in Malaysia. They were arrested in a raid on a construction site in Jalan Bukit Kiara in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur on Thursday.

On Friday, the country’s law enforcement agency DBKL said in a statement on its Facebook page that these construction workers were arrested because they did not have valid documents. Among them, 118 are from Bangladesh, 23 from Myanmar, 11 from Indonesia and 10 from Pakistan.

Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM), Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB), Fire and Rescue Department (JBPM), Solid Waste Management and Public Cleansing Corporation, Department of Occupational Safety and Health Malaysia and Immigration Department participated in the operation conducted by DBKL.

The campaign will continue according to the parliamentary constituencies in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, said DBKL.
