KUALA LUMPUR: A noted female newscaster and an actress were among 26 people caught in a sex party at a hotel in Jalan P. Ramlee here early yesterday morning.
The women also tested positive for drugs, sources said.
As of 10pm yesterday, they were still being detained at the police headquarters along with the others. Their ages range from 18 to 31.
Apparently, the 22-year-old newscaster is engaged and is due to be married next week. She has been reading news for a private television station for about a year.
The 25-year-old actress has apparently played a role in a movie made by a famous director.
Sources said the duo had earlier partied away at a 2009 countdown celebration in Mont Kiara.
Later, along with some other acquaintances, they proceeded to the four-star hotel to attend the sexual escapade.
Sources said a team of police from the city headquarters busted the private sex party some 30 minutes after it began at about 3am.
“When police arrived, many of the party goers were already high on drugs.
“There were also three couples lying on beds, but they were clothed,” added the sources.
Police found various types of drugs including ketamine, cocaine and syabu in the 11th floor room.
Beer and other liquor bottles were also lying everywhere.
Police believe the drug supplier was a 20-year-old male student from a private college.
Sources said police believe the party-goers knew one another via Friendster.
It was also through the online social network that the alleged sex party was organised.
City CID chief Senior Asst Comm (II) Ku Chin Wah confirmed the arrests.
