CHERAS: An illegal online gambling den here was taken down during a police raid Wednesday (June 12) night.

Cheras OCPD Asst Comm Mohamed Mokhsein Mohamed Zon said that the raid was carried out at a shophouse in Taman Desa Petaling.

A total of four suspects aged between 47 to 53 years old, including a Bangladeshi caretaker, were arrested.

The caretaker has been remanded until June 16 and the remaining three suspects have been remanded until Friday.

"They advertised and contacted players directly. Investigations showed that the operation was around two weeks old and operated between 9.30am and 9.30pm.

"Payment was made in cash upfront to the counter. The money would then be credited on a notebook for the player to gamble online," he said in a statement Thursday (June 13).
