PUDUKOTTAI: A special team of the Pudukottai police arrested K.A.S. Ramadas, an alleged raffle ticket dealer, on Wednesday on charges of supplying banned lottery tickets to a retailer here. The team picked up Mr. Ramadas (56) from his residence at Thennur.

Sources said that the arrest was a sequel to a raid conducted on the residence of lottery ticket retailer G. Vellaisamy here last week. During the raid, the Pudukottai police seized banned lottery tickets of Sikkim and Bhutan besides a computer, all worth Rs. 1 lakh.

Mr. Ramadas was produced before Judicial Magistrate Padmanaban and remanded to judicial custody.
