A petition filed at the Bombay High Court sought to clarify if Poker is a game of skill or gamble.
The petition was filed after the police raided an apartment in Goregaon and booked 29 persons, for playing a game of poker, under various sections of the Maharashtra Prevention of Gambling Act.
It has asked the prosecution to file a reply to the petition, filed by one of the accused, Nasir Patel, who allegedly ran the club.
Further, the police failed to consider that no license is required to play Poker within private premises for entertainment and recreational purposes.
It is alleged that Patel, when questioned said that he was the cashier and also operating the gambling den.
