'' He was trying to contact in India for several times and after it was proved, we handed him the punishment "- Mainul Hossain Chowdhury, executive magistrate

A mobile court, on Tuesday (January 15), handed a one month jail to an Indian citizen in relation to illegal betting during Bangladesh Premier League matches that were held at the Sylhet International Stadium.

The executive magistrate Mohammad Mainul Hossain Chowdhury told Cricbuzz that they have handed the punishment after he was found guilty of illegal betting.

"He was trying to contact [people in India] several times and after it was proved, we handed him the punishment," said Mainul.

'' He was an Indian citizen and he was betting from here. We could not receive any kind of documents like passport or any other thing from him. He could not speak Bengali and he could only speak Hindi. He admitted his offense and said that he won't repeat this kind of a mistake further, '' he added.

BCB security chief Hossain Imam noted that his name is Imran Pashar. '' His name is Imran Pashar and he came from Bihar. He was handed jail for one month. "

An inter-ministerial meeting in January last year empowered local administration in Dhaka, Chattogram and Sylhet to run mobile courts to tackle illegal betting in the BPL.
