African syndicate targeting Malay Indians to be drug mules

Kuala Lumpur , Wed, 28 Mar 2012 ANI

Kuala Lumpur, Mar 28 (ANI): An African drug smuggling group is reportedly targeting the Indian community in Malaysia to be drug mules.

Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) Youth chief T. Mohan said the syndicate is targeting people, especially who are poor, by offering a job with a monthly salary of between RM 6,000 and RM 8,000.

The African employers would then send them overseas for "training" or "business trips" to countries like China, Thailand and Singapore while hiding drugs in the victims' hand luggage or jackets, Mohan said.

According to The Star, on March 14, a 30-year-old man was reportedly caught for smuggling drugs after his African employer sent him to Shanghai on a business trip.

His mother complained to MCA Public Services and Complaints Department, saying her son, Vijendran Iyamuthu, was offered a job with a RM 6,000 monthly salary and overseas working trips.

The Department head Michael Chong said he was shocked to discover that the problem was much more rampant than what was reported to his department.

According to the report, of the 1,941 Malaysian detainees overseas, 341 are Indians. (ANI)
