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.
