Ludhiana: Police today claimed to have busted a multi-crore betting racket with the arrest of 13 persons including its kingpin Amarnath Bajaj and recovery of Rs 1.16 crore from them.

The operators of the betting racket, which was being run in nine states including Delhi, Haryana, Himachal and Uttar Pradesh, used to take out three daily draws involving crores of rupees, Ludhiana Police Commissioner Ishwar Singh told reporters.

The operators had a unique modus operandi as they would take the bids from people here and at other places and take out the draws in Delhi to escape attention.

Police acted on specific and secret information which was followed up with a watch on suspects that finally paid off with the arrest of the operators along with Rs 1.16 crore in cash, he said, adding, more arrests are expected in the case as the investigation progresses.
