The second gang was found active at New Agapura in Mangalhat. Rajesh Agarwal, 38, a trader from Goshamahal in Hyderabad and his friend Pavan Gupta, 32, from Hussainialam decided to start a cricket betting racket after they suffered huge business losses.
The police raided their den and seized Rs 12 lakh and mobile phones used for contacting punters who make bets.
