A mobile court on Tuesday fined five Indian citizens for illegal betting through their mobile phones during Bangladesh Premier League matches at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, said an official.  

The mobile court of executive magistrate Imrul Hasan also jailed a Bangladeshi for entering the stadium without a valid ticket and threatening the Bangladesh Cricket Board officials.

The Bangladeshi was identified as Sajeeb Ahmed, who hailed from Madaripur.

Magistrate Imrul said five Indians were fined Tk 4,000 each and had been expelled from the ground.

‘They were involved in betting with mobile phone. We imposed a fine of Tk 4,000 for each and expelled them from the ground. They will not be allowed to watch any more BPL game this season,’ he said.

Magistrate Imrul added that they handed a similar punishment to another India on Sunday.

A total of 20 people, including six Indians, were punished during the first three days of BPL, he said.

An inter-ministerial meeting in January last year empowered local administration in Dhaka, Chittaogram and Sylhet to run mobile court during cricket matches to tackle illegal betting.
