“Preliminary investigation found that the organisers invited the suspects to the party through WhatsApp and they were not charged any fee,” he said in a statement.

He said the party started at about 9pm and was scheduled to run into the early hours of the morning.

Dzulkhairi said they confiscated a set of speakers and laser lights, while urine tests found nine male and two female suspects testing positive for drugs.
