IPL betting: Vikram Aggarwal arrested by TN CB-CID

Chennai: Chennai-based hotelier Vikram Aggarwal was arrested on Monday by the Tamil Nadu Crime Branch-CID for his role in the IPL betting scandal. "We have been able to establish that he was gambling on IPL matches," said TN CB-CID DSP Venkatraman.

Aggarwal appeared before the TN CB-CID today. The police said they have learnt that Aggarwal was in close contact with arrested bookie Kitty and that he used his hotel Radisson Blu as a location to place bets.

"Further enquiry has revealed that Aggarwal had details of pitch conditions, among other information. So now we have decided to place him under arrest," Venkatraman said.

Aggarwal, who allowed some bookies to operate from his hotels, had earlier sought time to appear before the CB-CID. His two hotels in Chennai were raided after his alleged links with bookies came to light.
