Seven students at Nanyuki High School were Tuesday evening arrested and detained at Nanyuki Police Station for gambling.
The students, who had been sent home for school fees, were busted at Funland PlayStation in Nanyuki town.
They were immediately arrested on grounds of gambling in their school uniform.
County Police Commander Maxwell Nyaema said police received a tip-off from the owner of the premises.
When the officers arrived at the scene, they reportedly posed as gamblers and found the students gambling.
The owner of the premises was also arrested on grounds that the facility violated children’s rights.
The students were later released while the owner is expected to be presented in court.
