Mumbai: Aug 22, 2013 

A bookie alleged to be a ‘key’ person was arrested on Thursday, taking the number of those held in connection with the Indian Premier League (IPL) betting case until now to 22, the police said.

Chandresh Jain alias ‘Jupiter’ was arrested today after he was brought to the city on a transit remand, since he was in the custody of the Delhi Police, which had registered the IPL spot fixing case during its sixth season, an official said.

‘Jupiter’ was in touch with Pakistani bookies via conference calls using four out of the 30 telephone lines, allegedly facilitated by one Ramesh Vyas who has been arrested, the official said.

“He was constantly in touch with Shobhan Mehta, a key bookie who has been arrested and the Jaipur brothers who are wanted by the police. He also placed bets during the IPL 6 season,” the official said.

With Jupiter’s arrest, the number of those arrested in the IPL betting case so far has gone up to 22, including Ramesh Vyas, Ashok Vyas and Pandurang Kadam, among others.

After Vyas’s arrest in May, the police had recovered 92 mobile phones, 18 SIM cards, a laptop among other equipment.

Thirty of these phones were used to facilitate contacts with bookies in India, Pakistan and Dubai through conference calls made by Vyas.

Chennai Super Kings owner Gurunath Meiyappan, who is the son-in-law of N Srinivasan who had stepped aside as BCCI president and Bollywood actor Vindoo Dara Singh were also arrested in the case and are currently out on bail.

The Delhi Police had registered the case and filed a chargesheet naming Rajasthan Royals players S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan, among 39 others as accused.
