The Afzalgunj Police, found Rs. 2.03 Lakh of cash and seized their mobile phones. These men are identified as V Shashank, Rajneesh Kumar, Pavan Agarwal, and Maya Chandrakanth, the leading man behind this IPL racket.
Maya Chandrkanth, the leading man, has been accused of organizing bets on online platforms and collecting a lucrative sum of money after sharing the username and password with the punters. The accused has been collecting a commission on the amount from the agent.
Maya is also involved in a similar business of making easy money through online playing card games. The simple way this whole thing works is that if a punter wins a bet, he has to pay commission to the organizer, and Maya used to encourage online transactions only. Pavan Agarwal, one of Maya's associates who has been arrested, is said to have a criminal record in the past, while the other three are in legal trouble for the first time.
