ArrestSix men involved in an enterprise with an interesting title

Police in Jakarta claimed over the weekend that they had busted an online gambling ring operating a site quaintly named, arresting six men involved in its operation but still hunting for the owner, a businessman identified only as RH.

Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Rikwanto told local media reporters: “We have deployed a team to pursue RH, who according to preliminary investigations, has fled to China.”

Rikwanto said the arrested men were being held at the Jakarta Police detainment center for further questioning, and that each had a role in the business, which could collect Rp 300 to Rp 400 million on a daily basis.

The police were tipped off about the ring by local residents, and carried out a raid in which evidence was seized.
