Hyderabad has become famous for the cricket betting gangs since the last decade or so. The stakes involved in cricket betting in Hyderabad are so high, that they cross over Rs. 100+ crore per match during key international and IPL matches.
The police and other law enforcement agencies have cracked-down on various betting houses in the recent past. This latest crackdown, not only shocked the police officials but also raised serious questions to what extent the cricket betting mafic has sprawled across the nation.
The North Zone Taskforce Police arrested a gang that made Hyderabad as their hub for cricket betting activities. The police attacked the betting-houses in Narayanaguda, Abids, and Banjara Hills at once, and arrested 11 individuals linked to the cricket betting.
An amount of Rs. 45 lakh has been seized during the police raids. Voice recorders, cash counting machines, smartphones, laptops, TVs, and another betting-related equipment have also been seized. A case has been registered and a special investigation is in place. The police are hopeful that more information about other cricket betting gangs in Hyderabad will be out during the investigation.
