Salem (TN): Seven persons, including a woman, have been arrested in connection with a 'land-raffle' cheating case, a top police official said on Thursday.

City Police Commissioner Chokkalingam said the group told people that whose enrolled for the scheme, each membership costing rs 300, would be given land in Salem or Nammakal district if their name figures in the raffle draw.

The matter came to light after a person complained that no draw was conducted at the place mentioned and that he was threatened by the group, he said.

Three cars and Rs 2.20 lakh were also seized when the seven were arrested last night, he said, adding, police were on the lookout for some more persons in connection with the case.
