Three bookies were arrested in a house in Sushant Lok area here while they were betting on an ongoing IPL cricket match on Sunday night.

An FIR has been registered and police recovered four mobiles, one laptop and a notepad from their possession.

The accused were produced in a city court today but were granted bail.

Acting on a tipoff, a police team of crime unit, sector 17, led by unit head inspector Narender Chauhan raided a house in Sushant Lok area last night where three people were busy in betting.

When police entered the house, they saw one of them talking on a phone and other writing in a register while a cricket match was on a laptop screen in front of them.

“The accused were betting on ongoing IPL cricket match between the teams of Hyderabad and Kolkata. The house owner was not there and we are investigating the same and are looking for the house owner to nab him,” said inspector Narender Chauhan, investigating officer.

The arrested accused are identified as local residents Chirag Kataria, Rajesh Kataria and Naresh Gupta.

An FIR has been registered against the accused under sections 13, 3 and 67 of the Gambling Act at Sushant Lok police station.
