In May 2015, 139 graves, 106 bodies and 29 illegal immigrant detention camps were discovered deep in the jungles of Bukit Genting Perah and Bukit Wang Burma, a few hundred metres from the Malaysia-Thai border in Wang Kelian. What led to their discovery?

Shaarad Kuttan of Astro Awani speaks to S Arulldas, former journalist with the Malay Mail and the New Straits Times and an author of an upcoming book on the Wang Kelian Death Camps, who along with his photographer, first stumbled onto the death camps. Check it out here.
