BANTING: Nine illegal gambling centres, operating under the guise of restaurants and warehouses, were raided by police yesterday over their activities which are allegedly connected to slain businessman Tan Hock Low. 

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm II Abu Bakar Mustaffa said based on a tip-off, a team comprising 12 officers and 35 personnel, raided the premises at 3pm. 

SAC II Abu Bakar said police seized 152 computers and slot machines with horseracing and jackpot gambling games worth RM608,000 and RM9,000 in cash.  

An assistant manager, five male workers and three women cashiers aged between 25 and 36 were arrested. 

SAC II Abu Bakar said initial investigations showed that the operations of the nine premises had some connection with Tan, who was shot dead while dining in a restaurant in Jalan Imbi last Thursday. 

Tan, 38, who was the managing director of Million Tech Sdn Bhd, was stripped off his datukship by the Sultan of Selangor on Nov 27 for allegedly misusing his position for personal gains.
