20 Men Arrested in Malaysian Gambling Raid

This story was published more than 5 years ago.

Police in the Malaysian capital city of Kuala Lumpur and the Selangor region have conducted raids on seven gambling sites, arresting 20 people and seizing 120 computers in the process.

The raids were part of Operation Dadu, which has seen gambling dens clamped down on, as gambling is generally illegal in the Asian island nation. Those taken into custody were between 20 and 45 years of age, and were guards, customers, and operators.

In addition to the arrests, 127 computers, books, tools, cash, and other documents were taken into custody.
