Petition filed in Supreme Court to allow rummy

Krida Sports and Games Pvt. Ltd., a Chennai-based company which intends to start rummy operations in Tamil Nadu, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh has filed a civil writ petition in the Supreme Court, Glaws reports.

The petition states that rummy should be allowed to be played for stakes without any interference from the police. A total of 19 parties have been made respondents by Krida Sports including the states of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu and the Director General of Police of the three states.

The matter is likely to come up for hearing again on September 1.

Speaking to Glaws.in, Saravanan Subramanian, director of Krida Sports and Games confirmed that his company had indeed filed the petition but did not give further details of the points raised in the petition and the reasons why his company took the extraordinary measure of filing a petition directly in the Supreme Court, instead of approaching state high courts separately.
