10 detained by police for conducting illegal gambling activities at Congress councillor’s house

Published on:

The ban on gambling has been imposed all over India, and it implies to every citizen of the nation. But not everyone follows the government’s rules and regulations, and there always is a set of people who do exactly the opposite of what is meant to be. As for gambling is concerned, the number of rule breakers is countless.

The Alwar Sadar Police Station in Rajasthan detained 10 people who were gambling in a building’s basement close to Bhugor Tiraha as part of a big operation and seized more than Rs 2 lakh from their belongings. A similar incident was reported last month, in Pune, when the Social Security Cell had raided an apartment’s parking lot and seized cash believed to be worth 6.80 lakh.
