Sandeep Patil Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) said that this was another big arrest in the KPL match-fixing case. Patil said that the arrested bookie, Sayyam, a resident of Haryana, had been absconding for a while and was suspected to have fled to West Indies. He further added that a look out notice had been issued against him in the case.
