Dawood Ibrahim

Dawood Ibrahim is a big time underworld Don and has apparently had cosy dealings with the Bangladeshi uber-Don Tarique Rahman. Now the shock news from a Mumbai based bookie is that there was something unexpected in the betting patterns on the recent India-Bangladesh game:

“Dawood Ibrahim’ brother Anees and henchman Chhota Shakeel were monitoring the two matches from Jamaica. While there was Rs2,000 crore (20 billion) which includes bets placed in India, Pakistan, London, Dubai, and other international betting circles and riding on the Pakistan-Ireland tie, nearly thrice that amount was placed by punters on the India-Bangladesh match. It is no coincidence that both teams lost their matches the same day.” a leading bookie, who operates out of India told ‘DNA’ newspaper.

My moral compass is going round in circles now.
