MELAKA: Police here are investigating to find out how six suspects managed to travel interstate to run an illegal online gambling operation here.

Melaka Tengah OCPD Asst Comm Afzanizar Ahmad said the six, aged between 18 and 35 years, had rented a condominium unit at Klebang Kecil.

"The six, five men and one woman, had been living there for the past three weeks.

"My men are tracing how the six got past the roadblock during the movement control order," he said on Monday (June 7).
