Tushar Arothe, Ex-Ranji player and former coach of the India women's cricket team was arrested late on Monday after the DCB (Detection of Crime Branch) got information about betting activities at Arothe's Cafe in Alkapuri.

Former India Womens coach arrested for betting.

19 people were arrested which included Hemang Patel and Nishchal Mitha along with Arothe. It is said that Hemang was betting on the Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab match.

Jaydeepsinh Jadeja who is the DCP said "We had received a tip-off about the betting activities at the Cafe Stock Exchange in Alkapuri where a big screen was placed to relay IPL matches. We kept a watch there and conducted a raid on Monday night. Some persons sitting in a shed next to the cafe were involved in online betting on the IPL match. We checked their mobile phones and found that 19 persons, including Hemang, were placing bets on three different mobile applications. Hemang, who is one of the partners in the cafe, had betting app in his mobile and he was accepting and placing bets on the IPL match. Arothe too was present at the spot"

It is said that Hemang is in the business of betting and he used to accept and place bets worth lakhs.

They were later released on bail, but their phones and vehicles have been seized.
However, they did not find the betting app on Arothe's phone as he said that he has no idea about people betting at the cafe and that he will fight for honour.
