KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Twenty-eight Chinese nationals, including three women believed to be involved in online gambling, were arrested in a raid at a luxury bungalow at Jalan Kasawari, Ampang Jaya on Saturday (Nov 9).

Selangor contingent Anti-Vice, Gambling and Secret Societies Division staff officer DSP Azmi Shukor said during the raid at around 1.40pm, all individuals aged 20 to 44 were detained at the luxury residence which is believed to be the operation centre for online gambling activities organised by international syndicates.

"Initial investigations found that all of these individuals work as online gambling transaction operators at the operation centre," he said in a statement.

He noted that police also confiscated 25 laptops, 28 smartphones of various brands and one internet browser modem with various online gambling applications and websites operated by the syndicate.
