Three bookies arrested in Goa



Panaji, August 1: The Goa Police have arrested three Mumbai-based bookies for betting during the fifth South Africa-Sri Lanka One-day International played in Colombo on Wednesday.

Police said the bookies - Hitesh Jatakia, Sunil Shukla and Hitesh Desai - are from the Dahisar suburb of Mumbai and were staying at a hotel near Panaji for the entire series. A laptop, more than 16 mobile phones and some cash were recovered from their hotel room during the raid late Wednesday, a police spokesperson said.

"They have been arrested under the Goa Daman and Diu Public Gambling Act, 1976," he said.

In May, the state police, on a tip-off from their Delhi counterparts, had arrested six bookies for betting on the Indian Premier League matches.
