Illegal lottery raids in India

Aug 22, 2009
Special teams shutdown several illegal operations

In India, the Madurai city Commissioner of Police K. Nandabalan's special anti-gambling team led by Deputy Commissioner of Police P.C Thenmozhi, continued its drive against illegal gambling rings which do business through websites.

Following a tip-off earlier this week, the team raided a premises in Villapuram in Keeraithurai police station limits and seized raffle tickets issued from Arunachal Pradesh. Five persons — Saravanan, Shyam Prasad, Krishnakumar, Kartikeyan and Sundar of Villapuram were arrested and could face charges under the Lotteries Regulation Act, reports Hindu.com.

The investigating officers said that the gang procured the lotteries through different online sources. It is suspected that two persons were the ringleaders, selling to a few retail vendors in the southern districts.

“We are gathering details of persons who had financed the gang to procure lottery tickets in huge quantities and run the illegal business," said a police spokesman. "Initial inquiries suggest that the main dealer was operating from Dindigul district."

Superintendent of Police M. Manohar said that the raids on online lottery vendors had hopefully put an end to the illegal business in the region. The special teams detected that gambling was taking place in as many as 16 places during the operation, and all of these had been shut down and the owners arrested.

“Our next step is to check the servers with the assistance of the cyber crime police,” he added.
