The Gurgaon police on Saturday night busted a casino in Gurgaon that had been operating illegally from a house in residential block L in DLF City Phase 2.

The police arrested 43 people including five women and seized more than Rs 20 lakh in cash. The arrested people are businessman from Delhi and Gurgaon.

ACP (DLF) Ramesh Pal said, “We acted on a tip-off. The casino was operating in a rented accommodation for the last one month. It was designed by a professional from Nepal.”

The organiser had hired five women from Kathmandu, Nepal, who were already working in a casino.

The entry charges of the casino were Rs 1lakh and more than 100 persons visited everyday, according to the police.

The neighbours were probably aware of some suspicious activity, but no one complained as they were not certain, the police said.
