ED Arrests 2 More In Mahadev Betting App Case

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has made two more arrests in a significant development concerning the Mahadev betting app case. Deepening its investigation into alleged money laundering and illicit activities associated with the app.

Suraj Chokhani, Managing Director of Ability Games Ltd Company, and Girish Talreja were identified as suspected key players. They were placed under one-day judicial custody by the Raipur Court.

These recent arrests come after Nitish Diwan’s apprehension in the same money laundering case. Representing the ED, Saurabh Pandey disclosed that Chokhani and Talreja’s statements were recorded to corroborate Diwan’s claims. However, their statements reportedly contradicted the evidence held by the ED, prompting their arrest.

Chokhani, closely associated with Tibrewal, a hawala operator, is linked to the Mahadev app through an ID called Lotus 365. Talreja, alongside Saurabh Chandrakhar, managed this ID, engaging in betting activities. Pandey emphasized Chokhani’s close ties to Tibrewal, who has connections with individuals involved in the Mahadev app betting case.

The ED recently conducted raids at over 15 locations nationwide as part of its ongoing money laundering probe into the Mahadev online betting and gaming app case.

Earlier, the agency had arrested Asim Das, Bheem Singh Yadav, Chandra Bhushan Verma, Anil Kumar Agrawal, Sunil Dammani, and Satish Chandrakar. The ED alleged that the app’s illicit funds were utilized to bribe politicians and bureaucrats.
