With the Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket season back with a bang, the betting syndicates have surfaced again. On Monday, one such syndicate, run by three members, was nabbed by Ghaziabad Police from Hapur.

The gang used high-tech gadgets and computer-software to manage a large number of betters, police officials said.

Police arrested Ajay Kumar Narang, Harish Kumar and Surender Kumar - the members of the betting syndicate - from Hapur and recovered cash, sophisticated computer software and other gadgets used to run the betting fixtures during cricket matches.

Police recovered a software titled 'Betman', which they said was available at Rs 10,000-15,000 in the market and used extensively by the syndicates.
