The CBI has been informed that “the network of individuals involved in cricket betting affects the outcome of Indian Premier League (IPL) matches based on inputs received from Pakistan”.

The company has listed in its FIR that Dilip Kumar of Rohini in Delhi and Khurram Vasu and Khurram Satish of Hyderabad have been charged.

Officials say the network, which has been in operation since 2013, has been deceiving the public by “inciting betting”.

Fraudsters said they kept bank accounts using fake identities and learned customer documents from bank officials. “These bank accounts have been opened without proper attention by the bank officials by submitting fake details including dates of birth.
