“During the large-scale operation, all Immigration enforcement officers from Penang, Kedah, Perlis and Perak involved in the operation wore civilian attire and masqueraded as customers,” he told reporters after the special operation  at a shopping centre in Queensbay here on Sunday.

“The foreigners were unaware of the presence of Immigration enforcement officers and did not have time to escape as soon as we introduced ourselves and during the inspection, 58 of those checked were detained. The department detained 47 men and 11 women comprising Nepalese, Bangladeshi and Indonesian nationals for not having travel documents, overstaying and abuse of the social visit pass,” he said.
