Gambling raid in Kurnool district of AP; Minister involved


In Andhra Pradesh’s Kurnool district, a new story was spun when police tried to nab a bootlegging incident in connection with Karnataka. The Andhra Police were attacked and their vehicles severely damaged by the villagers upon reaching the location.  

On Thursday, the police raided Gummanur village of Chippagiri mandal after a tip-off about bootlegging. The accused involved in card games and gambling activities responded violently by attacking the Special Enforcement Bureau (SEB) policemen. Reports suggest that apparently they are relatives or followers of State Minister of Labour and  Employment Gummanuru Jayaram. The YSRCP Minister has issued a statement saying he was not associated with any such activities in his native village and has been unaware of such practices. 

Gowtham Sali, Additional Superintendent of Police, Special Enforcement Bureau of Kurnool reached the village as things started to escalate. Gowtham Sali told, “We received information that there was gambling activity in Gummanur, and that liquor was being smuggled in from Karnataka and being sold here. Based on the tip-off, three teams were sent. As the three teams were entering the village, a few people, villagers, obstructed the policemen saying they cannot enter the village, and allegedly broke their vehicle windows.”

According to a report, the SEB has seized more than INR 5 lakhs, 35 cars, 38 mobile phones and 6 bikes from the gambling site. The people involved have been booked under the Public Gambling Act, 1867 for gambling as well as organising these activities. On the same day, Minister Gummanuru Jayaram, MLA from Alur constituency of Kurnool district, issued a statement saying, “I will not support such actions under any circumstances. Our family lives in Alur itself but Gummanur is our native village. We will not tolerate any disturbances to peacekeeping. I have instructed the police to not spare anyone who is at fault, and to take legal action against them.”

There have been alot of allegations from the opposite party members and many villagers too. They have complained that the gambling den has a turnover in crores, on a daily basis and Jayaram himself gets a commission of minimum INR 10 Lakhs in a day. While, none of this has been proved yet, investigations are on. It has also come to light that the den was headed by Gummanuru’s own brother, but the police have not confirmed it yet.
