British National Of Indian Origin Arrested For Cricket Betting On IPL Matches

Mumbai police have arrested a British national of Indian origin along with his accomplice on charges of betting during an Indian Premier League (IPL) game between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi capitals.

The raid was conducted by the Unit-9 of the Mumbai police Crime Branch, after a tip-off from an undisclosed source about illegal cricket betting taking place from a posh hotel in Andheri (West).

The accused were caught red-handed placing bets and also facilitating cricket betting for others. The two would place bets through an online betting site and would also create IDs for clients to access betting services on overseas sports betting sites.

While both accused Rishi Dariyanani (40) and Mahesh Khemlani (39) are residents of Hong Kong, Dariyanani, holds a British passport.

This IPL season the Delhi police had earlier arrested four people who were allegedly running a cricket betting racket.

From the interrogation, the police have revealed that the duo was here in Mumbai specifically for cricket betting during the IPL season. They were operating from a luxury hotel in the city and were also changing their locations between Bandra and Juhu.

The police seized two laptops, seven mobile phones, one notebook, along with several different credit and debit cards. They were also found carrying different currencies including the Hongkong and US dollars. Total cash equivalent of 6.95 lakhs (approximately USD 10,000) was seized.

A district court has ordered them to be sent in police custody until May 6.
