    Betting network influenced 2019 IPL results with inputs from Pakistan, says CBI

    The Central Bureau of Investigation has filed two cases to probe the betting network in the 2019 IPL on the allegations that, “a network of individuals involved in cricket betting are influencing the outcome of Indian Premier League (IPL) matches based on input received from Pakistan.”

    “In the garb of betting related to IPL matches, they are cheating the general public by inducing them for betting,” the CBI said in the FIR.

    The federal probe agency has alleged that the accused had opened bank accounts with fake identities and Know Your Customer (KYC) documents in connivance with the unknown bank officials for this purpose. These accounts were allegedly opened with forged details, including multiple dates of birth and without due diligence by bank officials.

    “A part of the money received from the general public in India for such betting activities was also shared with associates based in foreign countries using hawala transactions. As per the information, the said network of individuals are involved in cricket betting since 2013,” the FIR read.

    The agency has also found unscrupulous financial activities of accused Dileep Kumar, a resident of Delhi, and Hyderabad-based Gurram Satish. The two, along with their associates, were in touch with a Pakistan-based suspect identified as Waqas Malik through a Pakistani phone number.

    The FIR also alleges that the domestic cash deposits in bank accounts which defy economic rationale are valued at over Rs 43 lakh from 2013 onwards in the case of Dileep Kumar.

    In the other case on similar charges, the CBI has booked Rajasthan residents - Sajjan Singh, Prabhu Lal Meena, Ram Avtar, Amit Kumar Sharma - as accused along with unknown bank officials and other unknown private persons

    NEW DELHI: Seven suspected cricket punters were on Saturday booked by the CBI even as the investigating agency began a countrywide investigation by simultaneously carrying out searches at seven locations across Delhi, Hyderabad, Jaipur and Jodhpur in connection with alleged match-fixing in the 2019 Indian Premier League.

    While there have been allegations of widespread match-fixing in a few of the previous editions of IPL, this is the first time that the CBI has actually booked punters suspected of betting with the aim to turn the outcome of the intensely competitive, limited-overs cricket matches.

    CBI sources were tightlipped when asked whether they suspect the involvement of any cricketer from among the teams that took part in the 2019 series. "That depends on the evolving evidence," a senior CBI officer said.

    Agency sources, however, said that investigating officers were vigorously pursuing leads that indicated some of the matches were fixed "based on inputs" the Indian punters received from Pakistan.

    According to two FIRs filed on Saturday, CBI investigators received information that a "network of individuals involved in cricket betting were influencing the outcome of IPL matches based on tips that they received from Pakistan".

    The CBI has named one Dileep Kumar, based in Rohini, Delhi, and Gurram Vasu and Gurram Satish based in Hyderabad in its first FIR as accused, while Sajjan Singh, Prabhu Lal Meena, Ram Avtar and Amit Kumar Sharma, all from Rajasthan, have been named in the second.

    "The information reveals that this network of individuals was involved in cricket betting during IPL matches held in 2019," the CBI FIRs said. The racket allegedly operating from Rajasthan was continuing since 2010 while another was on since 2013. The networks operating on the basis of inputs from Pakistan were also cheating the public by "inducing them to bet".

    The racketeers involved in betting possessed bank accounts ('mule accounts' in betting parlance) based on fake identities and KYC documents generated in connivance with yet-to-be-identified bank officials, the FIRs said.

    CBI sources said they have evidence that these bank accounts were opened for transactions by submitting forged papers and information such as multiple dates of birth and without due diligence by bank officials. The accounts in the name of a Rajasthan-based punter show three different dates of birth in the documents submitted to UCO Bank.

    "A part of the money received from the general public in India on account of such betting activities is also being shared with their associates based in foreign countries using hawala transactions," the FIRs alleged.

    The CBI claimed to have worked out the money trail and how the punters raked in huge amounts by putting in place effective betting mechanisms.

    The agency found that Dileep operated a number of bank accounts in which domestic cash deposits worth over Rs 43 lakh were made since 2013 defying all "economic rationale".

    In the six bank accounts operated by Gurram Satish cash deposits worth Rs 4.55 crore (domestic) and Rs 3.05 lakh (foreign) were made during 2012-20 and in the case of Gurram Vasu the amount was Rs 5.37 crore during the period.

    The CBI alleged that the maximum cash transactions in these accounts were of pan-India nature which substantiates the allegation of these unusual financial transactions being linked with cricket betting and other criminal activities, CBI sources said.

    Small networks of punters linked to each other operated in their respective circles but were linked to each other in the larger scheme of things. In the Rajasthan racket, the CBI found that the bettors allegedly shared part of the money received from the general public from betting activities with their associates based in foreign countries using hawala transactions while the modus operandi remained similar for the Delhi-Hyderabad group.

    In the Rajasthan group, the CBI alleged that accused Singh, Meena, Ram Avtar and Sharma were in contact with a Pakistani suspect who contacted them and some yet-to-be-identified persons in India through a Pakistani Number

    "The transactions in the accounts are circular in nature. The summation of the suspicious amount credited in the account of Sajjan Singh is valued at more than Rs.33.23 lakh -- from FY2010-11 to FY 2019-20.

    Surprised that there has been little reaction to this news!

    Surely BCCI and IPL should be jumping up and down about this? or are we going to see a cover-up?

    Well the constitutional court allowed him. BCCI cannot do anything if a high court orders his reinstatement.

    He was still banned for 12 years.

    Here PCB facilitated the return of Amir. Its another thing that he priortised money again.

    PCB only got Amir back once his ICC imposed ban was done in comparison to Azharuddin our Salim Malik is still banned .

    Constitution Court reinstated him but I am sure that court did not make him Hyderabad association President

    Amir came back because we were desperate. If it was the 90's and someone like Sachin was up to no good the same outcome would happen there too. Indians can try and pretend it wouldn't.

    Pretty hilarious how Indians genuinely think they uphold a different standard when it comes to fixing. It's easy to pretend when you have all the money and power right now. But the appointment of Jay Shah says enough about how morally great the BCCI really are.

    He was elected to that post. Once declared innocent by court, bcci cannot stop him from fighting elections. No one can.

    But Sachin Tendulkar didn't fix, so your example makes no sense.

    Go read Justice Qayyum report, see who all were fined and who was not supposed to captain pakistan ever again. So why were these people fined? For what offence?

    Election of Jay Shah. Why is it wrong?

    Corruption, betting, fixing will always be there when there is a lot of money involved. Few fans who try to boast about IPL money don't even realise that there is a dark world behind that glitz and glamour. I won't be surprised if we start hearing about players using drugs in the coming years. Just wait and watch. It is bollywood jihad....

    HYDERABAD: Gurram Satish and Gurram Vasu from LB Nagar, who were arrested by the CBI for cricket betting, had made “shady transactions” of more than Rs 10 crore between 2012 and 2020 through their links with Pakistan national Waqas Malik, the investigating agency has alleged.

    A day after the CBI officials registered cases against the two and five others for cricket betting and hawala operations, the CBI has found fault with bank officials for failing to scrutinise the accounts being maintained by the accused.

    The accused have accounts in State Bank of India, ICICI Bank, Axis Bank, Citi Bank, Bank of Baroda, Bank of India and Syndicate Bank. A network of individuals involved in cricket betting influenced the outcome of Indian Premier League (IPL) matches in 2019 based on inputs received from Pakistan, the CBI has said. Under the garb of betting related to IPL matches, the accused lured punters.

    “The accused opened bank accounts using fake ID cards and ‘know your customer’ (KYC) documents in connivance with some yet to be identified bank officials. A part of money received from the punters was shared with their foreign-based associates through hawala," CBI officials said in the report.

    They named three persons — Dileep Kumar of Delhi, Satish and Vasu in the case. They were in contact with Waqas Malik on a Pakistan number, 92-32278-90000. “Certain accounts maintained by the accused were not in line with the customer profile that has been submitted as part of KYC norms. The domestic deposits in accounts which defy rationale were valued at over Rs 43 lakh from 2012 onwards in the case of Dileep Kumar,” a CBI official said. Satish in his separate accounts with SBI, ICICI Bank and Axis

    Bank had domestic cash deposits of Rs 4.55 crore and Rs 3.05 lakh from foreign deposits during the financial years 2012-13 to 2019-20. Vasu was involved in routing money for various illegal purposes.

    The bank accounts operated by him in ICICI Bank and the transactions of domestic deposits were valued at more than Rs 5.37 crore from 2012-2020. Their documents were not properly scrutinised by officers, the report said.
