Gurugram casino run by dirty cop busted; 43 held
The Gurugram Police on Wednesday busted an illegal casino being run by a suspended Haryana Police constable in the upmarket South City-1 and arrested 43 people, including four women staffers. Police recovered Rs 22,44,000, 4 American Dollars, a country-made pistol, 4 live cartridges, a casino machine, cards, 48 branded liquor bottles, a currency counting machine, 210 tokens and 3 laptops from the house.
The accused, running the illegal casino, have been identified as Paramjeet Singh the suspended constable of Haryana Police and a resident of Jhajjar district in Haryana and Kapil, a resident of Sector-40 Gurugram.
According to police, Paramjeet was part of the police team that had killed Gurugram gangster Sandeep Gadoli last year. Paramjeeet was on the run with his service pistol since then. The weapon recovered is the service pistol allotted to accused Paramjeet before he absconded after Gadoli’s killing.
Both the accused were operating this racket from a rented accommodation for the last two days and he had hired four girls for this purpose.
Acting on a tip-off, several police teams under the overall supervision of Station House Officer (SHO) Sector-40 Sudhir Kumar mounted a raid at the South City-1 “K” on Wednesday night and arrested the accused.
The building had a restricted entry of rich and influential and the entire premises were under the watch of CCTV cameras. The customers visiting the casino were served branded liquor and meals, police said.
“The cash counting machine found from the premises suggest that there must have been heavy transactions. Further probe is underway as we are trying to ascertain their modus operendi of contacting clients,” said the SHO.
A case under various Sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), including Excise, Arms and the Gambling Act, has been registered against them at Sector-40 Police Station.
