PETALING JAYA: The Selangor Immigration Department has stepped up its operation against illegal immigrant activities in Damansara Perdana following the detention of 30 illegal immigrants in a bus there a week ago.

Ninety-two illegal immigrants were detained in a raid on a construction site ‘kongsi’ on Wednesday night.

During the raid, carried out at 10pm, the immigrants tried to hide beneath the wooden floor of the "kongsi" and bushes behind the building.

The department’s deputy director, Kamal Bahrin Atan, said the raid was conducted after they had received numerous complaints about the presence of immigrants there.

“We found they didn’t have valid personal documents and working permits. Most of them only had copies of their travel documents.”

The detainees were taken to the Selangor Immigration Department in Shah Alam.
