UK, Australia urged to probe IPL betting sites

NEW DELHI: Nov 4, 2013 DHNS

 The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has recently despatched letters rogatory to United Kingdom (UK)-based Betfair.com to probe into money trail in Indian Premier League match fixing-cum-betting case, said Delhi police official.

The special cell of Delhi Police came to know about the website Betfair.com during interrogation of punters and bookies. The police had arrested suspended RR players S Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila, bookies Ashwani Aggarwal, Ramesh Vyas, Deepak Kumar, Sunil Bhatia and Firoz Farid Ansari and ex-Ranji player Baburao Yadav along with others in IPL betting case.

“Based on the interrogation of several punters and fixers arrested during the operation, bets were apparently placed in huge volumes through Betfair.com,” said a senior police officer.


“We have requested the CBI to look into the source of these funds as it’s highly likely that Pakistan is the source of its origin,” the officer added.
