Nov 06, 2023

Bhopal (MP), Nov 06 (ANI): Union Minister of State Rajeev Chandrasekhar slammed Chhattisgarh government for not taking any stringent action against online betting apps. He further informed that Centre has blocked 22 betting apps on Nov 05. Speaking to ANI, he said, “Chhattisgarh Police and the Chhattisgarh Govt started the investigation 1.5 years ago but did not do anything regarding this. They wrote a letter, but no one knows to whom. They just wanted to stretch this investigation so that they can take money from the App. They have received Rs 508 crores from the App, and now they need to answer why they took it. ED requested us to block this App yesterday for the first time and we immediately blocked 22 such Apps. They did not give any application to the Central Govt to block this App in these 1.5 years.”
