Bhopal: There have been many cases of IPL betting which have come to the fore in the country but one of these cases in Madhya Pradesh (MP), has destroyed over two dozen families as their hard-earned money totaling more than Rs 1 crore has gone in vain because of the postmaster who lost the amount in IPL betting.

The postmaster Vishal Ahirwar, who is posted in Bina Sub Post Office was supposed to deposit this money in a sub-post office in the Sagar district but he used the money to cool down his fascination for IPL betting.

The Bina Government Railway Police (GRP) on May 20 arrested Ahirwar he is presently on police remand and he has also confessed before the police about putting entire Rs 1 crore plus money into IPL betting over the last two years.

"The arrested sub-postmaster Vishal Ahirwar has been booked right now u/s 420 IPC (cheating) and 408 IPC (criminal breach of trust). More sections could be added in the case based on the outcome of further investigations," Bina-GRP police station in-charge Ajay Dhurve told The New Indian Express on Tuesday.

According to the police, the postmaster issued the original passbooks for the fake FD accounts and invested all the money in IPL cricket betting for the last two years.

Meanwhile, as the news has come to the fore, the condition of the investors is bad as their lakhs of rupees have been sunk.

Reportedly, before Bina, the postmaster was posted at Khimlasa in Sagar district where he was suspended on charges of financial irregularities.

It is worth noting that this year many cases of IPL betting have come to light in MP and recently, IPL betting was exposed in Jabalpur. The strings of these people betting in IPL are also connected with foreign countries.
