Gambling: Zp CEO suspends 5 teachers | Aurangabad News

Aurangabad: Ajit Pawar, CEO of Beed zilla parishad (ZP), issued Thursday evening the order to suspend five teachers who were among 50 people arrested by police last week during a raid on a gambling den.
One of the suspended teachers is the district president of an association representing a section of teachers in the ZP, while two are from private schools.
Following the raid which took place late on December 28, BJP district chief Rajendra Mhaske was also appointed to the FIR. He later addressed a press conference and claimed that the recording of the case was nothing more than a political vendetta.
During the raid in Talegaon, Charhata Phata located on the outskirts of the town of Beed, the police arrested 47 people on the spot and seized several two-wheelers and four-wheelers for an amount of Rs 75 lakh.
The action was carried out by a team led by the IPS on probation and Deputy Police Superintendent Pankaj Kumawat. Authorities said the alleged gambling den was operated under the Yash Sports Club banner.
Police said five of the arrested suspects were teachers who were allegedly caught in the raid.
The next day, the police even released the information about the teachers to their respective employers, after which the ZP CEO ordered an internal investigation and, based on the results, ordered their suspension.
The preliminary police investigation revealed that the suspicious operators of the den had obtained an entertainment license and that it was being misused for gambling. Based on the complaint filed by Police Chief Balaji Darade, an offense under the relevant sections of the Maharashtra Gambling Law has been registered.
