SERDANG: Gamblers caught red-handed at an illegal gambling den here had to answer to the police district's top cop, Asst Comm Razali Abu Samah (pic).
"Why are you here? Times are tough now because of the MCO and you're wasting your money here," the Serdang OCPD said to a woman here on Wednesday (March 10).
He then chastised another man for wasting his pay on such activities.
ACP Razali told reporters that despite multiple raids, gambling dens such as these still crop up.
"You see them - just playing and relaxing as if there aren't any police around. I apologise for being a bit emotional but these people are so stubborn.
"We continue to do operations such as these but they still operate," he said after the raid at a shoplot on Jalan PPK1 here.
ACP Razali added that he was not disheartened and would continue to act against such operations.
On the raid, he said 11 people were inside, including a caretaker, adding that all of them were detained for further investigations.
"To all who continue to gamble, please stop. Go home and take care of your family and use your money for something more productive.
"Action will be taken if we catch you," he said.
