Hyderabad Police on an anti-gambling drive:

Hyderabad police last week arrested Amit Gujarati and his gang accused of running a national level betting syndicate. He has been absconding from the police for the past few years and based on a tip-off the task force police of Hyderabad managed to trace and arrest him.

Earlier in December, the Rachakonda police raided a resort at Keesara on Hyderabad's outskirts and caught six persons who were found gambling. The police seized Rs. 65,610 cash, five mobile phones, and playing cards from the accused. 

Last Diwali, a huge contingent of the Hyderabad Task Force and the Begumpet police raided a Diwali after-party and arrested a businessman, Aravind Agarwal, 55, and booked him for organising a gambling party for several VIPs. 

A few days prior to Diwali, The Cyberabad Special Operations Team, raided a farmhouse on the outskirts of Hyderabad and arrested several high profile persons from the state and neighbouring Andhra Pradesh for gambling. The police have seized INR 25 lakh and several high-end cars. The farmhouse is reportedly leased to the Tollywood hero Nagar Shourya family.
