Malaysian Police have arrested two Indians at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport with nine kilograms of ketamine taped to their bodies.
The men, aged 40 and 28, had arrived from Chennai, India, and were waiting for their luggage when a team from the Selangor state police headquarters detained them last Friday.
The 40-year-old suspect had three packets of ketamine taped around his belly and four packets taped around his legs.
The other suspect was also found with similar packages around his legs and belly.
The drugs were worth about RM280,000 ($88,711), New Straits Times said Tuesday.
Selangor narcotics Chief Assistant Commissioner Nordin Kadir said police had received a tip-off about the duo's activities and were waiting for them.
"According to their passports, they had entered Malaysia three times before their arrest," Kadir said.
Malaysia says it is being used as a major transit point for drugs smuggling and movement of men seeking jobs.
