Around 27 gamblers nabbed from Nov. to Jan.

During past three months, about 27 women and men who were engaged in gambling for money, have been arrested from both the Kurunegala and Puttalam districts of the North Western Province.

Meanwhile, Marawila Police has succeeded in arresting two young women and six men who were gambling in a house covered with a thicket in the Thalawila area on January 23 at night. The women who were thus arrested while gambling had previously worked abroad and were currently in the country on vacation.

The suspects were to be produced before the Marawila Magistrate Court, yesterday. A Police team led by Marawila Police OIC IP S. D. R. Priyantha had raided the gambling den and arrested the suspects.
