Five Thais and four Malaysians arrested for allegedly sneaking into Myanmar may be charged with human trafficking, Thairath Online reported.

Thairath claimed the nine people, allegedly led by Abdulloh Maseng, were arrested on Thursday after crossing the border in Tak’s Mae Sot district into Myawaddy.

They were being detained at Myawddy Police Station across the border from Mae Sot. 

Thai authorities have alerted the Thai Embassy in Myanmar to provide help to the arrested Thais, Thairath said.

Myanmar police suspect the nine people, who are carrying passports, avoided passing through the immigration checkpoint.

Thairath said Myanmar police suspect one member of the group is Rohingya and the group may smuggle Rohingya into Malaysia.
