Indian caught hidden in car speaker
Kuala Lumpur, July 7
Two men, including an Indian national, were caught at Singapore’s woodlands checkpoint while they were trying to leave the country illegally to Malaysia hidden inside the speakers of a car.
The Indian national, according to Singapore daily ‘My Paper’, was caught last Friday after he agreed to pay a middleman 1500 Singapore dollars to be smuggled out of the country inside the back hatch of the car fitted with speakers.
The driver, a Malaysian national, was to get 300 Singapore dollars for the work. The Malaysian driver of the car and his passenger, both 25, were to be paid 150 dollars each.
The other man was a Bangladeshi national who was nabbed last Thursday after he agreed to pay a middleman 1,000 Singapore dollars. — PTI
