Tamil actor Shaam who is known for his role in Allu Arjun’s movie ‘Race Gurram’ was arrested red-handed gambling at his apartment in Chennai. According to the reports, Chenna police arrested 13 others along with the actor on Monday.
It was learnt that the police conducted flash raids upon receiving information from credential information over gambling happening at Nungambakkam. Game boards, tokens and lakhs in money at Shaam’s residence was seized and the 14 involved were shifted to Nungambakkam F3 police station.
Upon preliminary investigation, police were shocked to learn that Shaam’s house has been housing gambling ever since lockdown started which also involves well-noted actors in the industry. While the police refused to disclose the names, the media speculated more arrest in the coming days.
Many businessmen, small-time industrialists and many more actors were allegedly involved in gambling here which is taking place from 11 PM to 4 AM every day. “It is not a non-bailable offence, an FIR will be soon filed,” stated an official.
