For those who are unaware, the Mahadev Book app, an online betting platform, is currently under investigation by the ED and police departments of several states. Reports suggest that ED has gathered digital evidence and going by that, Rs 112 crore was delivered via hawala to an event management company, while payment for hotel bookings, costing Rs 42 crore was made in cash, sources revealed last month.

OP Choudhary, former IAS officer and BJP general secretary was among the first persons to lodge a complaint against the company that used to be operated from Chhattisgarh. It is pertinent to mention here that Saurabh Chandrakar and his associate, Ravi Uppal, are among the wanted suspects in India. Allegedly, they have been operating their Mahadev online book platform from Dubai. Both of them are originally from Bhilai in Chhattisgarh. Both Saurabh and Ravi worked as local bookies, ran small juice stalls and tire stores. Now, they have purportedly accumulated a wealth exceeding Rs 6,000 crore through the Mahadev Book app. Mahadev Book App bypassed Indian regulations, permitting credit cards, UPI, debit cards, and bank transfers for betting.

With ED has already summoned Ranbir Kapoor, reports suggest that the central agency is likely to summon Neha Kakkar and Vishal Dadlani along with actor Tiger Shroff in the case as he was among the celebrities who performed at Chandrakar's wedding.
