The Vepery police have arrested an absconding key accused in a cricket gambling case. Jay Milan Shah (23) of Mylapore was secured from his hideout on Saturday evening and remanded in judicial custody on Sunday.
The trio facilitated people to bet on cricket matches held overseas and made huge money out of it.
After one Ronak Chordia lost lakhs of rupees to them, he lodged a complaint at the Vepery police station and a special team nabbed the duo from their office at Osiyam Arcades, Hunters Road, Choolai. While they were booked under Sections 420 (cheating) of the IPC and 66D of Information Technology Act and remanded in judicial custody, absconding Jay Milan Shah was traced by a special team led by Assistant Commissioner Maheswari.
