Indian police have arrested three men suspected of placing illegal bets on Indian Premier League matches as authorities crack down on gambling rackets that emerge around the billion-dollar franchise every year.
The trio were accused of running an online betting syndicate from a residence in New Delhi. Nearly all gambling is illegal in India but is still a huge underground industry.
“We arrested the three on Saturday while they were betting during the Mumbai Indians and Delhi Daredevils match,” Youdhbir Singh, a senior police officer in Delhi, told AFP on Tuesday.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
This is one of the reasons that crime is so rampant in India. Issues like drug trafficking and use of kids as drug mules for crime bosses and also illegal harvesting of organs from locals and also tourists are so common there. Many many countries have legalized gambling because ultimately, it should be one's decision whether they want to risk the money they have on games of chance. In my country Kenya, the government has made a point to tax the gambling sites owners and also to restrict citizens who are under the age of 18 from gambling.
