84 people, including 13 women, were detained on Sunday for conducting unlawful gambling activities. A Jaipur police crime branch squad and Jaisinghpura police invaded the farmhouse, leading to the arrests. The entry fee for the event, organized by a Delhi-based man, was Rs. 2 Lakh.
A Tehsildar employed in Bengaluru and a Karnataka police inspector was also among those detained. According to a senior police official, the arrests were carried out after a squad of Jaipur police entered the Saipura Bagh palace on Saturday evening while the suspects were gambling. Numerous young people, including girls, were seen playing casino games while attending the illicit high-profile party.
“9 hukka, 44 bottles of IMFL. 66 beer bottles, 14 luxury cars, one truck, and Rs. 23.78 lakh in cash were also recovered. The accused are from different states including Haryana, Punjab, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, etc. Accused would reel people in the event on the pretext of providing them services including alcohol, gambling, and women,” Ajaypal Lamba, Additional Commissioner of Jaipur Police, was quoted as saying by First Post.
The activity is executed by Naresh Malhotra alias Rahul alias Bablu and his son Manvesh, according to information obtained during questioning of the apprehended suspect. Kishan lives in the neighborhood of Motidungri near the police station in Jaipur. He organizes all of the events and hotel catering in the city of Jaipur.
Additionally detained was Saipura Bagh resort manager Mohit Soni. Manish Sharma, the accused, is a resident of Meerut and performs these activities throughout the nation. Manish maintains contact with jurors from various cities. He had already instructed to hold the event in Nepal.
“It has become clear that the party was organized after a meeting. Those coming from outside were offered an isolated place, as well as liquor, women to accompany them, and casino-like services. As the evidence indicates women were used in a material-like manner, charges of abetting human trafficking under relevant sections will also be framed against the accused in this case,” Lamba added.
