In the morning,a police team nabbed one Kanaiya Rana during a raid in Nawapura Golwad area in the morning and seized Rs 75,500 in cash from him.

Rana was brought to Salabatpura police station where Vijay Deepchand,a constable,booked him for gambling.

In the afternoon,when police inspector Vinay Shukal arrived at the police station,he was surprised to see a complaint which had booked Rana for gambling but did not mention any other suspects. He realised the goof-up and interrogated Kanaiya again.
