The Indian police has unearthed a scam related to the sale of the IPL tickets that has culminated with the arrest of two of the suspects. According to the Indian police, these two suspects bought IPL tickets for matches at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata using credit cards belonging to foreign nationals.
The value of the IPL tickets was said to be a total of Rs 17 lakh and the purchase of these IPL tickets was done online.
The ticketing service provider complained to the police after the money did not go through to them and ended with two of the Indians, Bikas Kumar Singh, 25, and Ramji Sau, 36, being caught. They are said to be the frontmen for the job.
According to the police, there were more than 100 tickets that the gang bought using these foreign national credit cards but the money was never creditted. There were a total of four such credit cards that were used to buy the IPL tickets.
The IPL tickets for the fourth season of the tournament, that was played in 2011 were available at KyaZoonga.com and bookmyshow.com.
