The party was believed to have been organised by a couple, in their 20’s, who were married three weeks earlier.

Meanwhile in another raid in Kuala Lumpur, a newscaster with a private TV station and a local drama actress together with six of their friends, who were earlier detained by police after being tested positive for ketamine and syabu drugs at a new year eve party, were released yesterday evening.

Kuala Lumpur Narcotics Crime Investigation Department head, ACP Kang Chez Khiang said the eight, who were detained during a police raid on Jan 1, were released on police bail at about 7pm.

He said another man, who was also tested positive for drugs, was still being detained on suspicion of being the drug supplier for the party.

However, he said, police would recall all the eight when the outcome of the urine tests carried out by the Kuala Lumpur Hospital was expected to be released in two weeks’ time.

‘Meanwhile, 17 other people at the party who had been detained earlier had been released without condition,’ he said when contacted here at the BERNAMA office today.
