Malaysian woman charged with smuggling heroin in her bra at a bus terminal

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — A 43-year-old Malaysian woman was charged with smuggling heroin in her bra. Drug trafficking carries the mandatory death penalty upon conviction. Prosecutor Raya Hazeelia Mohammad said Harini Che Soh was charged in a court in eastern Terengganu state Wednesday. No plea was recorded.

Raya Hazeelia said Thursday that Harini was arrested last week at a bus terminal. She could not immediately give further details.

The Star reported 20 ampoules of heroin were found in Harini's bra after police became suspicious of her "abnormal bust size."

A woman with Harini was reportedly arrested. It is not clear whether she also was charged.
