NEW DELHI: A casino allegedly functioning out of Radisson Blu Hotel in southwest Delhi’s Mahipalpur has been busted.

Deputy commissioner of police (South West district) Ingit Pratap Singh said that the cops received information that gambling rings had set their eyes on hotels and farmhouses in and around Delhi as most casinos in Mumbai, Goa and Nepal had been shut due to the lockdown.

“An informer tipped us off about an illegal casino functioning out of Radisson Blu Hotel. The special staff personnel conducted a raid at room number 101 and 103 of the hotel on Saturday night,” the deputy commissioner said.

“During the raid, 14 people, including five women, were found gambling using the chips and coins in the room on special tables. They were taken into custody,” Singh said. The chips, cops said, were used as transaction currency during the card play and actual cash payment was done the next day.

Out of the accused, four women are from Nepal and one from Punjab while all the men are from Delhi-NCR. The organisers have been identified as Amit Miglani and Amit Arora, police said.

The policemen also seized Rs 1.1 lakh in cash, 30 sets of cards and 6,100 chips worth Rs 30.5 lakh. A case under the Delhi Public Gambling Act has been registered at Vasant Kunj (South) police station.
