Betting racket which `stole’ live IPL match signals busted

Indore, May 25:
The Madhya Pradesh police today claimed to have busted an international betting racket which allegedly stole live telecast signals of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) matches.
By stealing signals, the accused got a head start and learnt about events during the match eight seconds before the TV telecast, a senior police official said here.
This is suspected to have helped them in placing bets of crores of rupees on matches, and luring others to place bets by offering `tips’, he said.
Ankit Jain alias Munnu Jockey, an alleged agent of the main accused, was arrested from Vidisha town today.
Superintendent of Police Jitendra Singh of the Indore unit of state Cyber Cell said that police started the probe after Star India, the broadcaster for IPL, lodged a complaint.(PTI)
