Bahrain police have arrested 32 expatriates for gambling in the capital Manama. In a brief statement, the Director-General of Investigation and Forensic Science late on Sunday said the detainees were from different Asian countries.
The arrests were made after an investigation was launched following the circulation of a video on social media that showed the suspects gambling.
They were subsequently identified and arrested while cash money and other items were confiscated, the director general said. Legal proceedings are being taken to refer the case to the Public Prosecution, he added.
Gambling and betting are strictly banned in Bahrain and other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).
