TAIPING: It was game over for a group of men eager to win some money from betting on cock-fighting when police broke it up at Kampung Air Kuning in Changkat Jering here.

"We arrested seven men, aged between 15 and 58, while the others escaped," said Taiping OCPD Asst Comm Harrith Kam Abdullah.

Acting on a tip-off, the team from the district police CID busted the cock-fight at about 5.30pm on Saturday.

Also seized was a piece of 60cm-wide black cloth used as the ring, seven taji (cockfighting blades) and about RM155(S$53.40) in cash.
