KUALA LUMPUR: Police are tracking down two men, who are allegedly involved in a robberyrape incident, which was caught on video at an illegal gambling den in Bandar Kinrara, Puchong.

He confirmed that the owner had lodged a report over the incident at 4.30pm on Saturday.
He said police would also investigate whether the entertainment outlet was operating with a valid licence.

They then switched roles. Police have formed a task force on the case.
