It was reported on Friday that the police have arrested 29 women of various nationalities, aged between 20 and 47, in an operation targeting pivoted KTVs, of whom 10 of them will be deported as their short-term visit passes and work passes were cancelled.

Can "10 of whom" and "of whom 10" (either phrase) replace "of whom 10 of them"?

Thanks.

I think "10 of whom" would fit in fine, why not "of whom 10".
In many cases, if we speak about English, there is not just one right way to say something. Some wording may have more style than another; usually the language they use in newspapers have no style, even though they have those style guides ;-)

Remove the "of them".

Yes. Or delete "of whom" and start a new sentence: "Ten of them...".
