Eight are arrested in online gambling case
Police in Anhui province arrested eight people for allegedly organizing online gambling that involved more than 500 gamblers and a cash flow of over 100 million yuan ($14.6 million; 13 million euros; £11 million). Police in the city of Chuzhou received a tip in July about a gang organizing an online casino via an instant messaging app. The informant confessed to having lost 130,000 yuan since March in chat groups. A task group was set up to investigate the case in the city of Pingxiang, in neighboring Jiangxi province, where the chat group organizers were based.
