Closed circuit televisions (CCTVs) at a massage parlour failed to stop a police raid on a massage parlour yesterday.

It is learnt that police discovered the premises had been fitted with four pin-hole CCTVs to keep watch on authorities.

However, the cops knew the location of the CCTVs and walked on the blindside before entering the first-floor premises.

The police found several people engaged in various sexual activities during the raid at the parlour located in SS2 here. The 4.30pm raid was conducted by the vice, gambling and secret society branch (D7) of the Petaling Jaya district police.
