Six people arrested in Saraphi for illegal gambling on boxing bout

Saraphi police have arrested six people for illegally gambling on a boxing bout.

The raid occurred at what police described as a “compound” in Baan Nongpung with the men arrested on gambling charges and taking property without permission, with one man also charged with being the operator of the illegal gambling operation.

Gambling, with the exception of the National Lottery, is highly illegal in Thailand and even small gambling offenses are often targeted by huge police raids.
