SINGAPORE: Forty-nine men were arrested in a hotel villa on Sentosa for suspected drug offences following a Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) operation, said the agency in a news release on Saturday (Aug 12).

Acting on information received, police conducted checks at the villa on Wednesday morning and found controlled drugs within the premises.

The substances seized include ecstasy, ketamine and drug paraphernalia.

Among the handout photos provided by CNB is an image of an invitation to the party, believed to be organised via a closed chatgroup platform.

The 49 men arrested are aged between 21 and 46. Thirty-five of them are Singaporeans. 

CNB declined to disclose at which hotel the incident took place. It said investigations into the drug activities of all the suspects are ongoing.

It is an offence to arrange for gatherings for drug abuse, and it is also an offence for the premise owner, tenant or occupier to permit the premises to be used for drug abuse or drug trafficking.
