Jamil said a Bangladeshi man told police that the boat handlers gave them directions on where to go once they reached the Malaysian shores, and escaped in other boats.
They have not eaten for three days and most of them were weak and thin, Jamil said.
"We believe there may be more boats coming," Jamil said.
