  • A raid was conducted on Tuesday on Mani Singh Basti in Daresi from where a man, Ashok Kumar, was nabbed for running illegal lottery racket. The police recovered Rs7,680 from him.
  • In another raid, a man, Sunil Kumar, was nabbed for operating illegal lottery and Rs5,350 were recovered from him.

Inspector Beant Juneja, while releasing the data, said the arrest of 83 persons was made by registering 49 cases under the Gambling Act in 2021. The police also recovered Rs 6.49 lakh from the arrested persons.

“We have clear instructions from the senior officials that illegal lottery business should not be allowed in the industrial hub. Our last year campaign against the illegal lottery had yielded good results as several rackets of illegal lottery were busted,” said Inspector Juneja.
