"From there, we and the criminal justice team went straight to the location and secured 7 units of City Park Apartments. There were 24 people (suspected perpetrators)," Ardhie said as quoted from the Jakarta Metro Police Media Center website Sunday, January 15, 2023.

Ardhie said the 24 people who were detained by the police were suspected of acting as online gambling operators.

They operate four online gambling sites using computers and laptops.

"Meanwhile, the information we got (from the 24 alleged perpetrators) was that some of them became operators because they were invited by friends who were already online gambling operators there," said Cengkareng Police Chief Kompol Ardhie.
