18 gam­blers ar­rested from 5- star ho­tel


New Delhi: Eigh­teen gam­blers were ar­rested from a five- star ho­tel in New Delhi dis­trict on Sun­day and were booked un­der the Pub­lic Gambling Act. The ar­rested have been iden­ti­fied as Amit Yadav, Pawan Pan­dit, Ikra­mud­din, Ji­ten­der, Kr­ishna Kumar, Raghav Bharad­waj, Vivek Tyagi, Mukesh Kumar, Shric­hand, Su­nil Kumar, Gya­nen­der Kumar, Ma­hara­jud­din, Naveen, Kailash Kumar Sharma, Su­dar­shan, Su­nil Gupta, Ashok and Dhar­mender. In­ter­est­ingly, the sources re­vealed, that the ac­cused, res­i­dents of trans-Ya­muna ar­eas, had opted for the five- star ho­tel to avoid po­lice scru­tiny. “As there has been a con­stant crack­down on such el­e­ments in east Delhi and other ar­eas the ac­cused de­cided to ex­e­cute their acts in fives­tar ho­tels to avoid po­lice de­tec­tion,” said the po­lice. ACP S. B. S. Tyagi said that they are scru­ti­n­is­ing the role of the ho­tel staff as they failed to re­port such largescale use of their premises for gambling and other such il­le­gal ac­tiv­i­ties. The case has been regis­tered at the Par­lia­ment Street po­lice sta­tion.
