KUALA LUMPUR (BERNAMA) – The excitement of 39 individuals, believed to be under the influence of drugs at a wild party held at a bungalow in Bangsar, was short-lived when they were arrested in a raid carried out yesterday.

In the 1.15am operation dubbed ‘Ops Parti Liar’, 20 men and 19 women, aged between 18 and 40, including nine Vietnamese nationals, were arrested by a team from the Brickfields District Police Headquarters.

Brickfields District Police Chief ACP Zairulnizam Mohd Zainuddin @ Hilmi in a statement today, said police also detained a female suspect who rented the bungalow via online at RM1,900 per night.

“Those who attended the party were invited through WhatsApp and phone calls.
