This story was published more than 4 years ago.

Three men in India were arrested last week after they were found to be operating a cricket betting ring by India's Central Crime Branch.

Manish Panjabi (38), Vybhav Parek (35) and Sunil Kumar (38) were taken into custody as a part of the ring, with law enforcement accusing the trio as being the cash collectors for the ringleader Rajasthan, who has yet to be captured by police. In addition to taking the men into custody, 9.2 lakh in cash, cell phones, computers, and other evidence was also collected.

Thus far India has broken up 52 crime rings offering illegal cricket bets, with 25 arrests in those cases.
