Changing Scenario In The Satta Market In India
When it started in the early 1960s with Suresh Bhagat and Ratan Khatri reigning as the satta kings in and around Mumbai, no one had ever guessed that a powerful king would be murdered and another would give away to heirs and successors in the matka industry. The classic gambling game of India revolved round the textile industries in Mumbai and later around Ahmadabad from where it spread its tentacles across various parts of India and across the borders to Pakistan.
Upheavals in the Industry
The first decade of the 21st millennium saw many upheavals in the sattamatka industry. First it was massive raids by the law enforcement agencies that nearly uprooted the gaming zone out of Mumbai and next came the murder of one of the matka kings Suresh Bhagat. The incident was followed by arrest of his arch rival Pappu Savia and it seemed for once that the era of spreading satta Matka Empire was virtually over.
However it transpired to be just the opposite of what many thought would happen. Though rumors were high that uncle of Suresh Bhagat, Ramesh Mota would take over the Kalyan Matka Empire, his son was also killed in the accident with Suresh. The murder occurred on the 13th day of June 2008 and the judgment was delivered only in 2013. It was strangely found that the murder was orchestrated by the wife and son of Suresh Bhagat. Prosecution case was that the murder was arranged paying Rs.45 lakhs to supari killer by Jaya the wife of Bhagat and six persons including the alleged killers were also arrested.
Satta Continues Unabated
In the meanwhile the satta business still continued unabated and later the special operations squad in Mumbai nabbed Rs.21.58 lakhs and arrested our persons involved in organizing the game of matka. This was a clear indication that the game of satta matka was very much alive and kicking even after the death of matka king. Some reports have gone to the extent of accusing the police involvements in the process as well though there is no conclusive proof to establish the allegations.
Satta Matka Locations in Mumbai
Game of matka seems still rampant in areas like Chembur, Oshiwara, and Malvani. That obviously indicates that people have never lost interest in the game and huge amount money is placed on bets in different satta matka games. There is one significant difference from the past though. The game is run by small bookies these days especially from the areas like Kalyan and Mulund. One can find around four hundred operators in Mumbai alone and over one thousand in and around Maharashtra.
Fact remains that whether it is the popular Kalyan matka or any other form of gambling game, people are taking to it owing to the thrills and excitement the game offers. Even greater incentive for them is the scope to earn huge amount of money by winning the satta game. Even after the emergence of online gaming system, small and dingy brick and concrete rooms where the game of satta matka is played with bookies writing down numbers stated by bettors still exist.
