Raids In Nepalese Capital Kathmandu, 24 Arrested Over Illegal Gambling

Just before the local festive season, the police in Nepal has launched a nationwide drive against illegal gambling.

In Kathmandu, the capital city of the Himalayan Kingdom, the police searched three different locations and arrested 24 people on charges of illegal gambling.

The local media reports confirm that seven of the 24 arrested were held from a Kapan-based dairy store and six were arrested from a local eating house. All these businesses operated as a makeshift gambling venue for locals.

11 people were arrested from Uhan Pokhari of Budhanilkantha in Kathmandu.

The police have also seized NPR 48,860 in the raids at the illegal and makeshift gambling facilities.

Earlier last week, Police in Pokhara, the tourist city of Nepal, launched a massive crackdown on illegal gambling which saw the arrest of 34 suspects in two days.

According to the Rani Pokhari-based Metropolitan Police Office which is in charge of the security and law and order in Kathmandu Valley, about 164 such makeshift gambling dens have been busted and 324 people have been arrested in the valley in the past four months.

Kathmandu is also the largest gambling city in Nepal with 8 gambling facilities, 126 tables games, 375 gaming, slot, and video poker machines.

Casino gambling is legal in Nepal with reasonable restrictions. Nepalese people are not allowed to enter Kathmandu casinos.
