Acting on specific information regarding the presence of lottery sellers in the jurisdiction of Police Station Kothibagh, Srinagar police arrested a lottery seller who was cheating common masses in Lalchowk area.

A case FIR No 02/2019 under the relevant section of law has been registered and investigations were taken up in this regard.


  1. Selling lottery tickets is also a way of earning, the way government servants of J&K receive their salaries at home doing nothing. There must be something fishy the man may have been doing.
