“We are thankful to Delhi Police that in a separate incident they caught two other persons from the Kotla on Anti Corruption Unit tip-off,” he said.
“So on two separate days, these people managed to get access to Kotla. The one who fled came in the garb of a cleaner. Anyway we have all his details as he was employed for the tournament. His Aadhar Card details have been handed over to Delhi Police.
“I am confident that he will be nabbed in a day or two. He is a small fry working for a couple of hundred or some thousand bucks may be. The information he may be supplying could be to someone more influential among bookmakers and so we needed to inform the Delhi Police. Delhi Police has responded positively and the next instance two people were arrested.”
“Obviously, with a bio bubble and no crowd watching around, it becomes a bit easier to manage and handle. When there is a crowd, it becomes difficult to check anyone and everyone,” he said.
