5 Goa offshore Casino Licences expire. Daggers roll out

The Goa state legislative assembly's ad hoc committee on home affairs chaired by the leader of the opposition Mr Manohar Parrikar has asked the government to immediately halt the operations of five out of six offshore casinos in the state as their licences to anchor within port premises had expired recently, as per the information provided to the committee by the captain of Ports, Capt A P Mascarenhas.

Since the licences had already expired, Mr Parrikar stated that it is a direct irregularity to allow such off-shore casinos to operate in Mandovi waters and said that he had made this known to the captain of ports.

The five casinos are Caravela, Casino Royale, Pride Of Goa, Rio and maharaja. The only casino to still have a licence to operate in the Mandovi waters is MV Arabian King.
