New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate on Sunday conducted raids at four locations in Delhi and Gurgaon in connection with a big betting racket related to the current Indian Premier League (IPL) Twenty20 tournament.

According to the sources, more than 250 mobile phones and 8-10 laptops have been seized from the locations. The most important aspect of the operation is that Enforcement Directorate found a Pakistan based bookie involved in the entire scam.

A case has been registered under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) and one of the biggest bookies Ritesh Bansal was being searched. The betting racket was allegedly run from Gurgaon and the money was transacted from two premises in Karol Bagh.

Citing reasons that might impact investigation, the Enforcement Directorate did not disclose the name of the Pakistan based conduit. The betting racket is not only confined to India and Pakistan and the ED also searched a person named Mukesh Sharma who had an illegal tie-up with a UK based betting sitebetshare.com.

Since, betting is illegal and payment for login id and password was not possible from India, Mukesh Sharma used to bring login id and password from Dubai and sell it at a premium to Indian customers.

ED anticipated that Mukesh Sharma has run away from India and is currently hiding in Dubai.
