Berita Harian quoted Asst Supt Mohammad Md Jais as saying that the dancers would offer sexual services to patrons at additional charges.

Their fees ranged between RM50 (S$19) and RM1,000 (S$380), he said, adding that a dancer’s fee was indicated by the colour of the sash that she wore, The Star Online reported..

ASP Mohammad, who led the raid, said the pole dancing performances and “extra” services were only offered on Wednesdays to avoid police detection.

During the raid, there were about 60 customers at the premises, he said.

Most of the pole dancers were Thai nationals.
