PETALING JAYA - Residents, especially parents and teachers, are concerned about the illegal gambling dens within or close to residential areas in Selangor.
G.S. Tan said his 17-year-old son took RM200 from an Ah Long inside one outlet on Jalan Bandar Rawang 3 in Bandar Baru Rawang.
"After that my son started acting suspiciously and wanted to work part-time. He even asked me for money," said Tan.
"When I questioned him, he said he wanted to buy branded shoes."
A few days later, a man approached Tan and said his son owed money for gambling. The amount had gone up to RM250.
