Former cricketer arrested for deceiving young cricketers

Saurav Bhamri, a 29-year-old former cricketer has been arrested by the police for allegedly deceiving young cricketers whom he assured to send him to Australia to play a game, the police said reported on Tuesday.

A police officer while talking IANS said, “A manhunt was launched for him last month but he evaded arrest by changing his hideouts. The Crime Branch on Monday raided his hometown and arrested him,”

The cricketer was arrested from his native place Hapur at Uttar Pradesh.

Bhamri went around telling people that he had contacts in Australia with which he can send young prospects to improve their skills.

“He boasted that he had good contacts with Australian cricket associations. We are interrogating him,” the officer further added.

“He was taking money from young cricketers after promising to send them to Australia for club matches. He gave fake visas to them. He took Rs 5 to 20 lakh from every person,” concluded the officer.

This issue came to light after a Delhi resident complained to the crime branch of Delhi police on July 29.
