In an another instance, when a bookie tried to threaten a woman to get the due amount of Rs 17 lakhs which she lost on bets, she retaliated by threatening to lodge a rape case against him. The bookie has no other option but to leave the place.

Bookies have gone into underground ever since the spot-fixing scam broke out. However, they have been still in touch with the betters through phone to recover their money. In fact, Most of bookies have borrowed money on interest to place the bets. They will be in huge financial crisis if the punters refuse to pay the due amount.
