DNA (Delhi) - - DEL I -

Gu­ru­gram: The Gu­ru­gram Po­lice has raided a “casinocum-bar” il­le­gally run­ning from a house in the posh South City area of Mil­len­nium City, an of­fi­cial said on Thurs­day.

The po­lice said that they have ar­rested 43 peo­ple, in­clud­ing the man­ager and four women, on charges of gam­bling in a raid last night.

“The team was de­ployed near a house and a raid was con­ducted. See­ing the po­lice party, all the 43 peo­ple, in­clud­ing the women, who were play­ing in the casino-cum­mini bar tried to es­cape.

“They were later caught. The ma­jor­ity of the ac­cused were busi­ness­men. They are res­i­dents of Delhi and Gu­ru­gram,” Ravin­der Ku­mar, Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer, Po­lice, said.

They have been booked un­der rel­e­vant sec­tions of the Gam­bling Act, the Arms Act, and the Ex­cise Act.

The team seized Rs 22.44 lakh, a pis­tol, and four live car­tridges. Forty-eight beer bot­tles, a cur­rency count­ing ma­chine, plas­tic money, a casino ta­ble, play­ing cards, and three lap­tops were also con­fis­cated, the of­fi­cer said.

The casino was be­ing op­er­ated from the house for the past few months and was be­ing run by the Man­ager, Kapil, a res­i­dent of Gu­ru­gram Sec­tor-40, the of­fi­cer said.

Its owner Pram­jeet has also been ar­rested. It is sus­pected that a gang was in­volved in or­gan­is­ing th­ese events.

It seems the casino-cum-mini bar was be­ing op­er­ated here as the po­lice in Delhi had con­ducted sev­eral raids re­cently
