BAU: Two premises here had their power supply cut off when they found to be carrying out illegal gambling activities last Monday (Dec 21).

District police chief DSP Poge Nyaon said the operation was carried out by Sarawak Energy Berhad (Sesco) and Bau CID team from 10.45am to 11.30am.

The power cut was pursuant to Section 21A of the Common Gaming House Act 1953 so that it would not return to operate.

“The premises are located at Siniawan Market and Jambusan Market.

“The power supply cut was made in front of the caretakers of both premises,” he said.

Poge added there was no use of force during the operation as they (caretakers of the premises) were very cooperative.
