Nine children and two teenagers were rescued by Malaysian police on Friday, according to reports in the Malaysian media.

New Straits Times reports that the victims were discovered in a confined space at the premises by a team from the Secret Societies, Anti-Vice and Gambling Division of the Dang Wangi police headquarters.

Malaysian police say the victims were to be sold to begging syndicates at a price of RM 1,200 to RM 1,500.

Documents seized from the premises indicate that six children had already been sold off.

Six Myanmar nationals aged between 25 and 30 believed to be involved in the criminal syndicate that is involved in Rohingya human trafficking were arrested from the spot.
