In the Ratchathewi area, where 40 gamblers were detained on Tuesday, authorities have opened an investigation into an illegal hi-lo den.

While the investigation into the gaming den is being conducted, Pol Maj Gen Atthaporn Wongsiripreeda, the captain of Metropolitan Police Division 1, has mandated the momentary relocation of Pol Gen Wacharawee Thammasema, Phaya Thai stop director, to the regional offices.

The move comes after Tuesday’s raid on the gambling den in Uruphong Soi 19 on Rama VI Road, by Crime Suppression Division ( CSD ) officers. The region is under Phaya Thai network’s control.

During the attack, officials arrested 40 gamblers, and seized gaming equipment, along with 500- ringgit in money.

From first inquiries, it was found the hi- behold cave had been operating for some time with a large audience.

However, acting police commander Pol Gen Kittrat Phanpet has mandated that all forms of illegal gambling and gambling be investigated.

He claimed that over the past month, authorities have made numerous arrests.

The local police chief may be assigned to an inert position if a gaming establishment is discovered to be operating due to the negligence of the officers, according to Pol Gen Kittrat. Such activity is considered an operational sentence, he said.

Nevertheless, any police chief who is found to have received gifts or gains from any unlawful activities will also face criminal charges, according to Pol Gen Kittrat. &nbsp,
