Two bookies held for betting on India-SL T20 final match

Two bookies have been arrested from a flat in south Mumbai’s posh locality for allegedly operating a betting racket on the T20 World Cup final match between India and Sri Lanka, police said.

Acting on a tip off, the flat at Akruti building in Walkeshwar area was raided last night where three bookies – Rajesh Mehta, Nilesh Shah and Naresh Shah – were found accepting bets while the T20 World Cup final match was underway between India and Sri Lanka.

Three mobile phones, nine landline phones, a laptop, a desktop, an Ipad, a printer, along with other betting material were seized from the flat, police said.

“Rajesh and Nilesh were arrested while Naresh was admitted in hospital as he claimed to have been feeling chest pain when picked up,” said a crime branch official.
