Mahadev Betting App Scam: Centre Shuts Down 22 Illicit Apps & Websites, Including Mahadev Book


New Delhi: The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) on Sunday issued directives to block 22 illegal betting apps and websites, which include Mahadev Book and Reddyannaprestopro.

Among the 21 software and websites blocked by the government following investigations by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), the illegal betting app Mahadev Book is specifically mentioned, as announced in a statement today.

“The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has issued blocking orders against 22 illegal betting apps and websites, including Mahadev Book and Reddyannaprestopro,” the government said in the statement via the Press Information Bureau (PIB).

“The action follows investigations conducted by the Enforcement Directorate against illegal betting app syndicate and subsequent raids on Mahadev Book in Chhattisgarh, revealing the app’s unlawful operations,” the government said.

The government action comes on a day when an accused in the Mahadev app case claimed that Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel had asked him to go to the UAE.

The case involves allegations of money laundering and the use of illicit funds during the elections against Mr. Baghel, surfacing just days before the anticipated voting in Chhattisgarh. It’s noteworthy that Chhattisgarh is the only state where the Congress is perceived to be in a strong position.

In his statement, Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar indicated that the Chhattisgarh government had the capability to shut down the illicit app and website well before, underscoring that they “had all the power” to initiate such measures.

“Chhattisgarh government had all the power to recommend shutting down of the website under Section 69A of the IT (Information Technology) Act. The first and only request has been received from the ED,” Chandrasekhar said.
