Goa’s casinos probed for money laundering involvement

A government investigation has revealed a possible link between Goa’s casinos and an international money laundering racket, local media reports.

Whilst conducting a review of their compliance with the election code of conduct (for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls), a number of suspicious online transactions were found amongst Goa’s casinos, said sources.

These transactions were tied to persons from outside the country, who had placed bets, however, no taxes were paid – which also has led to a loss to government revenue.

The government is further probing the matter.
