Twenty-one people have been arrested on charges of gambling following raids on five suspected venues in Bangkok.

“On January 8-9, officials investigated five locations in Bangkok suspected of running gambling operations,” Pol Maj-General Jiraphop Phuridet, deputy chief of the Central Investigation Bureau (CIB), said on Sunday.

“This operation is a part of the National Police chief’s policy to eliminate gambling dens nationwide to reduce the risk of Covid-19 spreading among the public.”

3. A house near Tesco Lotus Rama I in Pathumwan district. Officials arrested four suspects who were allegedly playing high-low bets via mobile application. The mobile telephones and some cash were confiscated.

4. A rental room in Khlong Kwang community in Yannawa district. Officials arrested four suspects for allegedly playing a card game and confiscated a deck of cards and some cash.
