Our Bureau

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The State Government will move decisively against online and paper lotteries that violated the Lotteries Act, according to the Lotteries Director, Mr E. Ayyappan.

An official quoted Mr Ayyappan as saying that the High Court had on August 16 ordered that lotteries found violating the Act should be prosecuted. The Advocate-General, Mr Rajan Joseph, too has advised the State Government that the ongoing action against violators should be persisted with.

The State Government had informed the Centre on August 23 that all online and paper lotteries of other States operating in Kerala were flouting the provisions of the Act. Directions had since been given to the District Collectors and Superintendents of Police to take action against them.
