Casino operators in Goa have gone silent after being asked by the government to supply information related to their possible involvement in an international money laundering probe, local media reports.
Last month, a government investigation found a possible link between Goa’s casinos and an international money laundering racket.
This was found after the government began conducting a review of the operator’s compliance with the election code of conduct (for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls), with a number of suspicious online transactions amongst Goa’s casinos found.
However, it appears that the casino operators are sleeping over the issue, and have not submitted the documents requested by the government agencies as of yet.
Sources close to the matter said they have been asked to comply immediately.
