India has enacted a nationwide prohibition on gambling, which applies to all of the country’s residents. But not everyone abides by the laws and norms of the government, and a certain percentage always acts in a way that is completely contrary to what is intended. There are many people that breach the rules when it comes to gaming.

In a recent instance, a gambling group known as “Fun Roulette Game” has been busted by the Delhi Police’s Crime Branch. The Crime Branch has detained 19 individuals after investigating. The DCP informed about the findings of the investigation and revealed that 14 Computers and a laptop had been found, which are currently in their possession.

A couple of days back, the Bengaluru City Crime Branch (CCB) detained 13 people in connection with an illegal gaming network and recovered more than one lakh rupees from them. Although the accused’s identities have not been made public, CCB officials claimed that they were operating “andar bahar” games in the gambling establishment.

A normal deck of cards is used in the game of chance known as Andar Bahar. Predicting which of the two boxes, “andar” or “bahar,” will win is the goal. In a related operation, the CCB arrested 24 gamblers and busted two wagering rings in Vidyaranyapura and Halasuru Gate in Bengalore last month.

Just last week, the Mumbai Police Crime Branch was instructed to take over the investigations of 14 cases that were related in an effort to eradicate Matka gaming in the city. An officer explained that Matka gambling is a guessing game where the player guesses and writes down the winning number on a piece of paper.

According to the police, the Crime Branch’s social service branch had undertaken 14 searches at Matka gaming establishments throughout the city so far this year. Following the raids, police stations received reports of the incidents, and both customers and bookies were detained.
