Delhi Police have already had a busy year for operations against illegal gambling. According to a Times of India report, so far this year, there have been more than 1000 cases, resulting in 2300 arrests.
According to the report, almost 200 cases were registered in the northwestern district, followed by more than 150 abroad and almost 100 in the west. More than 375 players were arrested by police in the Outer District, 340 in the Northwest, and more than 200 in the West, Southwest and Southeast.
An officer said: “The specialised cells of the districts were tasked to crack down on those involved in drug peddling, bootlegging, prostitution and gambling as money from these crimes was used in anti-national and terrorism activities.”
In the same period last year, around 720 cases were recorded, with 1900 arrests and more than Rs 4 lakh were seized.
