Kolkata Police seized 118 tickets from various individuals ahead of the India vs South Africa match. Those tickets were being black marketed, which the police seized from various sources. Although the stadium was packed for Sunday’s match, at least 118 seats were empty. Because the tickets were confiscated, the seats were empty. So where did the tickets go?
Kolkata Police started confiscating tickets from last November 1. Now that ticket is in Malkhana of Lalbazar. The 118 tickets that were confiscated could not be used or resold. A Kolkata Police official said that a total of seven complaints have been filed in different police stations on charges of fraud and black market. These 118 tickets are an important proof of that. So as per rules those tickets are kept in Lalbazar Malkhana as evidence in an envelope packet.

These tickets will be shown during the filing of evidence during the case, said a police official. But there is a long process before that. After starting the police explanation, the investigation is done by gathering evidence from different places and taking statements of witnesses. Forensic tests are also done if needed. After the investigation, the police issues a charge sheet, which is presented to the court. If the charge sheet is accepted, the case starts in the court. At that time the evidence has to be presented in person in the court. Until then, the evidence remains in police custody.
The investigation of one such case takes a long time. Police officials believe there will be many more matches at Eden before the confiscated tickets see the light of day.
