Sri Lanka arrests six for school bus gambling

    Sri Lankan police have arrested six people for organising an illegal gambling ring on a school bus in Chillaw, local media said. The accused dropped off the children before carrying out their gambling operations. No further details were available. Sri Lanka’s parliament recently ruled out issuing new casino licenses in the country amid stiff opposition from religious, social and political parties. The ban affects proposed multi-million dollar luxury resorts, including a project from Australia’s Crown Resorts.
