Mumbai Police, who have arrested six bookies in connection with the spot-fixing scandal, on Monday told a local court that they would investigate if the Pakistanis with whom the bookies were in touch had any terror links or connections with the organised crime syndicates.

Mumbai police have so far arrested six bookies - Ramesh Vyas, Pandurang Kadam, Ashok Vyas, Neeraj Shah, Pravin Bera and Pankaj Shah alias Lotus in connection with the case.

The Mumbai crime branch on Monday produced these bookies before the court, which remanded them in police custody till May 22.

All the bookies were allegedly not only accepting the betting, but were also connecting the calls from bookies in Pakistan and Dubai.

The crime branch officials also told the court that they were on the lookout for other bookies namely - Rakesh, Sanjay, Jupiter, Noka (all from Jaipur); Lokesh and Tinku from Delhi; Jatin and Lambu from Gujarat and Kishor from Pune.

Some other bookies - Trimurti, Kothari, Shoban, Paresh, Balu, Ketan and Bunty - are also wanted in the case.
