The CBI will probe a betting racket involved in IPL matches held in the year 2019 in Delhi with alleged links to Pakistan. Three people were arrested in this regard so far, CBI said, and two FIRs have been filed. The central agency has started a country-wide probe, they said. 

The CBI received information that "a network of individuals involved in cricket betting are influencing the outcome of  Indian Premer League (IPL) matches based on inputs received from Pakistan", the FIR alleged.

The agency has listed one Dileep Kumar, based in Rohini, Delhi, and Gurram Vasu and Gurram Satish from Hyderabad in its FIR as accused. The network which is operational since 2013 was also cheating the public by "inducing them for betting", the officials said.

The racketeers have bank accounts (mule accounts) using fake identities and know your customer documents in connivance with the unknown bank officials, they said.

"These bank accounts have been opened by submitting forged details such as multiple dates of birth and without due diligence done by the bank officials.

"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 FIR has alleged.
