Recently 24 people were put behind bars for allegedly running gambling rackets in Jhobra Colony near Mhow-Indore road by the police forces of Indore, Madhya Pradesh. The police even busted INR 100,000 from their possession. The location of the rackets fell within the jurisdiction of the Kishanganj Police. They have been waiting for weeks to bust the rackets, but somehow the miscreants’ collar wouldn’t come within their fists. After following up their leads every day when they got an anonymous tip-off about two gambling rackets being run in a nearby poultry farm, they knew they couldn’t let the involved get away. Two sub-inspectors took on the lead of busting the rackets and bring the culprits to their knees in front of the court. KS Bamaniya and MK Sharma picked their team from the existing members of the force and went on to catch the accused, and when they busted the rackets, they found the accused red-handed and by surprise. A case was lodged against all the accused members under Section 13 of Public Gambling Act under the constitution of India.
Despite the case being registered against the miscreants still, they were out on bail. Speaking of which, Arun Solanki, Kishanganj police station in charge said to the press that, “As the offence was bailable, all the accused were granted bail. Given the magnitude and number of people involved in these illegal gambling rackets, they were booked under Section 151, under the constitution of India. They were produced in the court of Mhow SDM on Monday and released after they furnished personal bonds.” As per the police sources, it’s the biggest gambling racket busted in Mhow tehsil in the past 3-4 years. He also congratulated the sub-inspectors for doing a commendable job and nipping the rackets in the bud before it was too late.
