In a major breakthrough in the Karnataka Premier League match-fixing case, the Central Crime Branch (CCB) has arrested international bookie Sayyam. The international bookie was arrested in the case of match-fixing by celebrity drummer Bhavesh Bafna. Bafna is currently in judicial custody.
A resident of Haryana, Sayyam had a lookout circular (LOC) issued against him as he was absconding from the law agencies and allegedly hiding in the West Indies. Earlier this month, two players, both from the Bellary Tuskers team, captain CM Gautam and Abrar Kazi had been arrested for alleged involvement in the KPL match-fixing case.
The two are accused of spot-fixing in the KPL finals which was played between Bellary Tuskers and Hubli Tigers on August 31 this year, according to CCB.
