Goa police have formally charged two Delhi residents in connection with the alleged theft of casino chips valued at Rs 13 lakh at Panjim’s Neo Majestic Casino. The complaint, filed by Mukesh Gulati, Director of Golden Peace Hotels & Resort, accuses the duo of coordinating the theft with a shared motive.
As informed by Mukesh Gulati, the incident unfolded on Friday when the accused, identified as Sunil Kumar and KD Thakral from Delhi, executed the theft at Neo Majestic Casino. According to the complaint, one of the culprits collaborated with the other to sell 13 casino chips—totaling Rs 13 lakh—at a discounted rate to a casino patron named Anil Modi, as reported by Times of India.
The alleged theft resembles a previous incident that occurred in Porvorim in 2017. Orchestrated by Brijban Singh and Devendra Pratap Singh, their modus operandi involved stealing chips from an offshore casino and selling it within the casino premises. The duo managed to abscond the casino premises with 10 lakh worth of casino chips before being caught and remanded by the police, as reported in the 2017 article by Times of India.
Sunil Kumar and KD Thakral remain unarrested at present, with authorities actively pursuing the accused. The ongoing investigation aims to shed light on the circumstances surrounding the alleged theft.
