Police officers recovered several vehicles, including 5 four-wheelers and 14 two-wheelers, as well as 2.80 lakh in cash for forfeiture. Raju Adhangle is believed to be the manager of the illegal gambling den. Adhangle had allegedly established Navin Nashik Mitra Pariwar to host several events. The organization advertised itself as a charity, but police say they were actually fronts for illegal gambling.

“Twenty-six persons were released on bail only a few hours after they were arrested, while 15 others were taken into custody,” according to Hemraj Rajput, speaking on behalf of the Nashik Police. All 41 people were held under various sections of the Bombay Prevention Of Gambling Act, 1887 (Bombay act no. IV of 1887).
