"The syndicate used a new tactic by skipping KL International Airport (KLIA)

due to strict enforcement over there."

Ayub said the tactic failed as Penang police managed to trace the spa

employee in Kuala Lumpur who was carrying the drugs in a baggage.

Investigation also found that Penang woman was a lover to one of the

students arrested and was highly paid to carry the drugs.

Besides money, the woman was also given a free travel package to carry drugs

worth RM750,000.

"On Dec 21, the woman took a flight from KLIA to Mumbai, India, and to Addis

Ababa (Ethiopia) and Bamako (Mali), a country in West Africa to take the drugs."

Ayub said police seized RM29,634 from the suspects who were remanded until

Jan 4 to aid investigation under Section 39B of Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.
