Four, including two moms, arrested for pre-sahur gambling in Bone
Detectives from the Taneteriattang Police precinct in Bone, South Sulawesi, arrested four people, two of whom were mothers, as they gambled early on Friday.
The two mothers, identified by initials as Nir, 26, and Ags, 40, said that they gambled to kill the time before preparing sahur (pre-dawn meals). The other two are ANM, 34, and NRA, 26.
“We were just playing around. We did not want to oversleep and miss the sahur,” Ags said.
Besides arresting the four gamblers, detectives also confiscated two sets of cards and Rp 60,000 (US$6.3), as the game’s bet.
“All of the perpetrators are now being detained,” said Taneteriattang Police precinct chief Comr. Ali Syahban, as quoted by kompas.com. (riz/iwa)
