According to the police, the bookies have links in Delhi, Ahmedabad and even in Dubai.

The unit 9 of the crime branch raided a commercial building, following a tip-off, where three people, including Deepak Ravi Kapoor, Tarun Sunny Thakur and his cousin Sunny Ashok Thakur were arrested.

According to the police, Kapoor was a small time punter before taking up the bookie business full-time. Kapoor runs a real estate consultancy as a front and is the kingpin of the betting gang. In all the police have seized 13 cell phones, two laptops, a diary with client details, computers and around INR 74,000 in cash.

The police further added, “We’ve sought call detail reports to know as to who they were in touch with”.
