Ludhiana, January 24

Suspecting that illegal activities of gambling and betting on Cricket were going at private farm houses and rented accommodations, Ludhiana Police Commissioner Rakesh Agrawal has issued strict directions to the station house officers concerned to immediately stop such activity else be ready to face the music. The CP also asked the station heads to ensure no illegal lottery operations run in their areas. “Some notorious elements are allowing gambling, betting on cricket in private farm houses and houses being given on rent to such elements. Immediately stop this activity in your areas, else SHOs concerned will be dismissed from service or suspended depending upon the extent of negligence,” ordered the CP during a meeting with the police force. Sources said even in the NDPS Act cases, the top cop told the SHOs to arrest the proclaimed offenders still at large in drug smuggling cases.

He asked cops for special campaign in this regard. The CP told the cops to keep an eye on snatchers coming out on bail as most of them are repeated offenders.
