Gambling Bust: 27 Caught at Ahmedabad Gymkhana While PCB Remained Inactive

In a recent operation, the Ahmedabad Crime Branch successfully detained 27 individuals engaged in unlawful gambling activities within a well-known Gymkhana Club situated in the Daryapur area of Ahmedabad city. This event comes on the heels of a prior significant gambling bust carried out by the State Monitoring Cell of Gandhinagar. On that occasion, some individuals from Ahmedabad were found to be assisting the favored clubs, which led to a temporary lapse in law enforcement vigilance. Unfortunately, a similar situation was encountered this time around, necessitating the intervention of the Ahmedabad Crime Branch. The apprehended gamblers displayed an apparent lack of remorse, as they were seen smiling during their detention.

Current Developments

In response to the recent gambling bust at the Gymkhana Club in the Daryapur area of Ahmedabad, the City Police Commissioner has taken a resolute stance on the matter. The Commissioner has expressed grave concern and is committed to taking stringent action not only against those directly associated with the club but also against any individuals who may have facilitated or supported these illicit activities. This determination stems from the fact that, on previous occasions, the State Monitoring Cell of Gandhinagar had uncovered major gambling operations in Ahmedabad with the assistance of certain individuals, leading to inactivity on the part of the Police Control Bureau (PCB).

During the operation led by Crime Branch Police Inspector J.H. Sindhav, valuable information was received indicating the involvement of an individual named Govindbhai, also known as Gamabhai Khodidas Patel. It was reported that Govindbhai was orchestrating gambling activities on the second floor of the favored Gymkhana Club in the Waghjipura area of Daryapur. Acting upon this credible tip-off, the law enforcement team proceeded to the location to investigate the matter.

Upon conducting a thorough search of the premises, the following items and evidence were discovered:

  1. Nine sets of Ganjifa playing cards were confiscated.
  2. Thirty-nine sets of Ganjifa cards were concealed beneath a table.
  3. Thirty-two pieces of paper containing records of game-related wins and losses.
  4. A substantial sum of cash amounting to Rs. 54,600.
  5. A total of twenty mobile phones were found in possession of those involved in the gambling activities.
  6. An aggregate amount of Rs. 2.02 lakhs was seized as part of the operation.

This significant haul of evidence and cash serves as compelling proof of the illicit gambling operations that were taking place at the Gymkhana Club. The seizure underscores the gravity of the situation and strengthens the case against those individuals involved in these unlawful activities. It further highlights the commitment of the Crime Branch team to uphold the law and maintain the integrity of the community by curbing illegal gambling practices.
