The authorities raided a house suspected of running a gambling and betting racket and seized approximately $86,926, 20 mobile phones, an equal number of SIM cards and a laptop used for the operation.

The suspects all hail from different parts of the country, as reported by The Hindustan Times.

Deputy Superintendent Gursher Singh stated police had recently launched a special operation against illegal gambling activities, and that this raid was part of it.

“A team, constituted under the leadership of inspector Manphul Singh, raided the house and discovered a gambling and betting ring. All accused were caught red-handed,” he said.

“The entire racket was being operated online and through phones. Evidence of betting has also been obtained. More information is expected during the police remand of the accused."

In Delhi, the police arrested two men for not wearing masks in a stadium during a live event, only to discover they were passing on match-related information to bookies. This led to more arrests and one of the suspects admitted his employee was operating a betting website in Dubai.

“They were present inside the stadium during three IPL (Indian Premier League) matches and around 12 persons, including one from Dubai, were connected through conference calls at one time and they all were making money through online betting,” stated Delhi police.

An anti-corruption unit also took on the case, as some of the suspects reportedly had accreditation cards that “were prepared by one supervisor of IBS company, Pramod Kumar.”
