Gambler dies in offshore casino

A high roller reportedly died at a local offshore casino a couple of days ago. Sources say that he died due to cardiac arrest.

It is reported that the high roller lost quite substantially before the tragic end. Though police claim that no complaint has been filed or there is any cause to order an inquiry and jurisdiction of Captain of Ports does not come into effect as it is in inland waters, one of the ancillary staff has questioned.

Goa is the only state in India that has several casinos out of which 4 are functioning offshore ones.

There has been lot of rancour among citizens over these off shore casinos chocking the Mandovi river and local MLA and chief minister Manohar Parrikar has long promised to move them out, but they continue to remain put in the river. [H]
