KATHMANDU: Police carried out a surprise raid at Durbarmarg-based Royal Casino on Sunday evening.
During the raid, Police arrested two Nepali women and three other men red-handed while gambling.
Existing laws bar Nepalis from entering casinos.
Casino operators have long been accused of luring Nepalis ‘for illicit profit’ instead of barring them from the gambling dens.
The arrestees –still to be identified--will be charged under the Gambling Act- 1963, police said
