Watch: Fake IPL staged by Gujarat people to dupe Russian punters


Recently, the fake IPL scandal is going viral from Molipur of Gujarat as they want other countries, including Russians to fall for it. While Gujarat police formed a team and caught the fake 'IPL' which is going in Molipur, on another side, the police of Uttar Pradesh also found other people organising a fake cricket league in Meeru.

According to the reports, both the fake cricket leagues have been done by Asif Mohammed and Ashok Chaudhary which was officially confirmed by the police of both Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh.

Moreover, the SP of Hapur in Uttar Pradesh, Deepak Bhuker shared a few words about the case, saying, "The accused had been running the Punjab Big Bash league matches for four days at Sudha cricket grounds in Meerut.

We received information that the fake cricket league matches were being held to accept bets from Russian punters. We raided the place and arrested Shitab Zahid, a resident of Meerut, and Rishabh Dhanesh, a resident of Gwalior."
