MELAKA – Melaka Police plans to raid 40 suspected online gambling premises over the weekend to rid the state of such activity.
Melaka Police chief Datuk Chuah Ghee Lye said the integrated operation dubbed ‘Op Dadu’ will involve Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB).
“I believe the raids will paralyse online gambling. Several premises have already ceased operation,” he told reporters in Bandar Hilir here, today.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar had given state police chiefs until Sunday to close online gambling premises and failure will result in their transfer within 24 hours.
Chuah said 307 raids were carried out on online gambling premises in Melaka Tengah district between Jan 1 to Oct 29 this year.
Of the number, 281 raids were successful leading to the arrest of 421 people and the seizure of 4,967 computers worth more than RM2 million. – BERNAMA
