Five people from Etobicoke and Brampton were arrested as part of an investigation into alleged illegal activity at a casino in Toronto, Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) said.

An OPP spokesperson said the Investigation and Enforcement Bureau and the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario were notified on March 18, 2024, of allegations that a table games dealer colluded with patrons at Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto.

This resulted in five people being charged.

They were identified as 21-year-old Anagha Varghese, 23-year-old Yakshu Nehra, 25-year-old Himanshu Tanwar and 25-year-old Parkh Raheja, all of Etobicoke. Tajveer Kour, 21, of Brampton, was also charged.

The accused parties face similar offences, including criminal breach of trust (Varghese and Kour), as well as fraud and theft charges.

All five were released from custody and will appear in court at a later date.

The Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto opened in Rexdale in June 2023.

In a statement, the Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto said they appreciate the prompt arrest of the accused and will continue to support OPP’s investigation.

“Rigorous measures are in place to detect and thwart any instance of collusion or fraudulent activity in our casinos and we remain vigilant in ensuring these measures are upheld to preserve the trust and safety of our guests,” continued the statement.
