Bus Stop in Marsiling Converted into Illegal Horse Betting Station
A bus stop near Block 20 Marsiling Lane have been reportedly used to conduct illegal horse betting activities.
Around 40 uncles and aunties were spotted at the location on Sunday (17th May) afternoon. Most were not observing safe distancing and were seen sitting close together and placing their bets. An auntie seated at the bus stop believed to be a bookie was seen collecting cash bets.
Taxi driver Mr Ong (52-years-old) said that the same group of uncles and aunties have been gathering here since the beginning of last month (April). He added that they used to conduct their activities at the nearby hawker centre or garden, but moved to the bus stop after those places were sealed up by authorities.
Mr Ong who has already made a police report, commented that not only are these people increasing their risk of getting infected, but they are also creating a very bad atmosphere in the neighbourhood by gambling in broad daylight.Editor's Note: Do you have a story to share?
