Alcohol and gambling in Bihar are banned by the government and Bihar is a dry state under the law. But people who consume alcohol and participate in gambling seemingly cannot be stopped by it, at the same time, showing how incompetent the law under effect is. A similar case was witnessed in the Harimandir Galli area of Chowk police station area of Patna City, where the police team raided the house of Surendra Singh alias Lucky Chawla on the basis of secret information.
7 people were caught red-handed while illegally gambling and consuming alcohol. The police have seized a packet of cards, 89 thousand rupees, 3 bottles of English liquor, and 7 mobiles from the gambling base. The investigating police team is currently making strict inquiries.
Police says that a secret information from a known source was received that gambling and liquor are being consumed illegally in the house of Surendra Singh alias Lucky Chawla, located in Harimandir Gali, on the basis of which the police team raided and arrested 7 people.
Significantly, incidents of crime are increasing continuously in Bihar, including the state’s capital Patna. The opposition is attacking the Nitish Kumar government over the issue in limelight. The opposition alleges that the government has failed completely on the law and order front. At the same time, on Saturday, CM Nitish Kumar held a high-level meeting with officials regarding law and order. In this meeting, the CM had given strict instructions to the officers that criminal incidents should be dealt with strictly.
