Update: Internet Environment More Convenient for Indian Bookies

Restrictive laws drive gambling to the virtual world

According to the latest reports from India, the country's authorities are planning to engage more cyber security experts as they wish to fight illegal online gambling which began thriving with bookmakers increasingly moving on to virtual channels to evade detection.

According to an unnamed "highly placed source in the Police Department", its Cyber Crime Police Special Investigative Team needs to be better equipped to trace and tackle online operators, as currently some of its members have no tools to simply hack into an online account.

It has been specified by an online bookmaker operating from Mumbai: 'There are a lot of online websites and closed communities on social networking sites which deal with real money. On paper, during registrations, they pose as just gamers involved in gambling.'

On the other hand, Deputy Commissioner of Police (crime) DM Krishnam Raju said: 'Though such websites are only involved in legal gaming, a closer look and preliminary investigations have revealed that many deal with real money. We will have to track them down. Such things exist even with Poker online. We will track them down and use all the assistance we can get from the Cyber Crime Police.'
