Muar, August 16th – In a swift and coordinated operation, Muar police launched “Ops Dadu” (Operation Dice) yesterday, targeting illegal gambling activities in the area. The crackdown resulted in the closure of nine units associated with gambling and the disconnection of their power supply, with the crucial assistance of Tenaga, the national electricity company.
Led by the Muar Police District Director, Raj Mukhriz, and Muar Criminal Division Director, Mohd Juhari, a team comprising police officers, Tenaga Corporation representatives, and Muar City Council law enforcement officers executed the operation seamlessly.
The enforcement action was in response to growing concerns over the proliferation of illegal gambling operations in the Muar district. These activities not only contribute to social issues but also pose a significant challenge to local law enforcement.
In a statement released on their official Facebook page, the Muar Police District urged the public to be vigilant and proactive in reporting any suspicious activities related to illegal gambling or other criminal behaviors. They have set up a dedicated hotline, reachable at (06-952 6001), to facilitate the reporting process. This move aligns with their commitment to fostering a safer community by encouraging residents to play an active role in combating crime.
The operation underscores the determination of the Muar police to address unlawful gambling activities and maintain the integrity and safety of their district. Operations like “Ops Dadu” are part of a broader effort to uphold the law and ensure the well-being of the community.
The closure of the nine gambling-related units and the disconnection of power supplies represent a significant blow to illegal gambling operations in Muar. It sends a clear message that the authorities are actively pursuing and dismantling such activities to create a safer environment for all residents.
Law enforcement officials have promised to continue their efforts to combat illegal gambling in the area, and they encourage the public to report any suspicious activities promptly. Together, they hope to rid Muar of these illegal enterprises and promote a lawful and secure environment for everyone.
