The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) arrested two immigration officers working at the Malaysian High Commission in Bangladesh on suspicion of taking bribes from Bangladeshi tourists and workers.

The duo - a man and a woman - were placed on remand, Free Malaysia Today reports, citing MACC Chief Commissioner Azam Baki.

They were temporarily stationed to work at the Immigration Attaché Office at the Malaysian High Commission in Dhaka, according to Malaysia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In a Twitter post, Wisma Putra (Malaysian foreign ministry) said it paid close attention to the integrity of civil servants under its ministry and those working in Malaysian diplomatic missions abroad.

It added that the Malaysian High Commission in Dhaka and the ministry would give their full cooperation to the MACC in its probe.
