3 arrested in Jorhat for IPL Betting

Assam police on Saturday arrested three individuals in connection with illegal betting on the ongoing Indian Premier League T-20 tournament from Titabor, Jorhat district.

The three individuals identified as Madhab Jyoti Gogoi (30), Nilomoni Das (33), and Debajit Gogoi (28) have been apprehended. The Police have also recovered notebooks, mobile phones, and cash of Rs. 1,04,100 from them. 

As the Indian Premier League is underway in the UAE, the Police in different states are actively investigating several organised illegal betting groups. According to top police sources, the organised rings operate from obscure towns in utmost secrecy with the help of local administration in some instances.

Earlier this month, two betting rackets were busted in the country—the first in Bengaluru and the second in Jaipur.
