Three held in Ahmedabad

Ahmedabad, May 16, 2013, DHNS:

At least three bookies from Ahmedabad have landed in the Delhi police net over an Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket spot fixing scandal.

While the police here are tight-lipped about the development, it is now learnt that sleuths from Delhi had visited Ahmedabad a couple of days back in the course of their investigation.

Three bookies—Chandresh Chandbhai Patel, Mandal Bhupendra Bhatt and Amit Kumar, who are of Gujarat origin—have been picked by Delhi sleuths, who are camping in Mumbai.

With the arrest of the bookies from Gujarat, it is now widely speculated that the wide network of the bookies spread over Gujarat would now come under the scanner of the enforcement agencies.

Interestingly, according to the highly placed sources in Ahmedabad police, the Delhi police had refrained from getting in touch with the local police. “We are aware that a team from Delhi police had landed in Ahmedabad a couple of days ago, but they did not communicate with us,” said a top police official here.

A police official said the Delhi investigators had visited the Chandola lake area in the city a few days ago. The area has the largest settlement of illegal migrants from Bangladesh. The Delhi police are in touch with the Gujarat ATS (Anti-Terrorist Squad) though no official confirmation could be obtained for the same. It is now being speculated that the Delhi police have been exploring the underworld connection to the betting circuit, which may have spread its tentacles to Gujarat as well.
