Illegal gaming outlet with catchy tagline busted
AN illegal gambling den used the tagline “Everyone Can Win” to lure customers into its outlet, Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported.
Police uncovered the tactic during a recent raid at the outlet, which had been operating for just two days.
The operator had put up a notice stating that the outlet would hold a “special bonus” session once every fortnight with prizes such as a 40in television.
The daily also reported that the outlet did not put up any signboard but the operator had installed sever- al CCTV cameras at the entrance.
Selangor anti-vice, gangsterism and gambling division chief Asst Supt Mohd Iqbal Ibrahim said four Bangladeshi workers, 39 locals and three foreigners were arrested during the raid on Wednesday.
“This is one of the 12 illegal gambling centres we raided in Subang Jaya and Puchong areas,” he said, adding that several gaming machines were also seized.
> The owner of Durian Station in SS2 has refuted claims that a cus- tomer was charged RM5,760 for a box of Raja Kunyit durians.
Several photographs showing five durians on a scale, a plastic box of durian pulp and a receipt showing the amount have been circulated on social media recently.
When contacted by Sin Chew Daily, outlet owner Li Zhi Gang claimed that someone wanted to put his stall in a bad light.
He claimed that the person who posted the photographs and the customer who made the payment via credit card were “two different persons”.
Li said he remembered that the receipt was issued to a customer who came with a group of friends.
“I have no idea how the person got the receipt but it was not for a box of durians.
“No customer will pay more than RM5,000 for a box of durians. Furthermore, the transaction was made about three months ago,” he said.
Li said Raja Kunyit, or Mao Shan Wang, was sold at about RM93 per kilo.
