Dharamgarh police in Kalahandi district busted an Indian Premier League (IPL) betting racket and arrested one person. 

The illegal betting was busted at Kendumundipada during a raid led by Dharamgarh sub-divisional police officer (SDPO) Dhiraj Kumar Chopdar on Monday. 

The arrested person has been identified as Rakesh Ranjan Choudhury. 

A sum of Rs 75,000, seven cellphones, laptop, cash counting machine and other incriminating documents were seized from the spot.
“We are verifying the bank accounts of the accused person and his relatives. The betting racket might have a wide network. Further investigation is underway,” said Dipanjali Pradhan, IIC, Dharmagarh. 

Last month, Pattapur police in Ganjam district had arrested six persons for their alleged involvement in illegal betting on the cash-rich T20 tournament.
