Mumbai Police In Search of Illegal Operations in Dubai

Senior spokesman for the Mumbai police department, Pravin Patil, revealed to the media that online gambling is on the rise and investigations have uncovered evidence that illegal operations are running from Dubai.

“We think Internet gambling is a trend picking up with gamblers," Patel said to Indian Express. "Such players are difficult to trace and apprehend as they can gamble from the comfort of their homes using their computers.”

According to Patel, Mumbai police investigators have discovered 300 internet cafes that are offering illegal gambling services to Indian punters via Dubai servers. Even the use of ISP blocking has not kept the sites offline for long.

The Social Service Branch, partnered with the Cyber Crime Investigation Cell of the Mumbai Police Crime Branch, has been reviewing call data records of those dealers recently apprehended to identify the operators in Dubai.

    I must say that i am totally agree with this : "We think Internet gambling is a trend picking up with gamblers"... it is much easier to get new gambler to your casino online than make him to go to your land based casino... So with a lot of no deposit promotion online casino picking up new costumer who maybe never gamble and some of them become gamblers... This is not case with me, I was gambler before expansion of online casino.. just saying....

    Internet gambling is a What........................ Doesn't that make you laugh; We think Internet gambling is a trend picking up with gamblers," A trend is like a fad. I am sure that a long time ago that you could say that internet gambling was a trend, but it has gone a long way past that, I mean the trend phase. Internet gambling is here to stay. There are many Patel's, people of India origin with that same last name, living in the USA and believe me when I say that they know a lot about gambling. This article makes it sound like they are going after the punters or players because they say, " Such players are difficult to trace and apprehend as they can gamble from the comfort of their homes using their computers." Maybe they are trying to scare players away from using those sites/casinos. I am sure that there are some players that get an email offering them a bonus to join/sign up at a casino, but don't even look to see where the email is coming from, putting that player unknowingly in harms way. I know that it will make me look into the origin of a casino before I sign on the dotted line.
