IPL 2021: Three people accused of defrauding an 18-year-old and his family on the premise of getting him a spot in Kolkata Knight Riders

When the child’s father called the founder, they learned that there was an opening in the KKR squad, but they’d have to spend 30 lakhs

Three people are accused of defrauding an 18-year-old and his family of 30 lakh rupees on the premise of getting him a spot in the IPL with the Kolkata Knight Riders.

The boy had recently entered the Karnataka Sports Club in Fort and was practicing there twice a week. “He met one Pushkar Tiwari who told him that he had played for Himachal Pradesh as a bowler in the state’s cricket team. He advised the boy not to try for Maharashtra team as he will have to face a cut-throat competition. He advised the boy to play from other states to avoid competition,” an official police officer stated. Tiwari and the boy exchanged numbers. This happened in March.

Tiwari eventually named the boy and told him that he encountered someone who managed a sports management firm and that the squad KKR needed a bowler right away. When the child’s father called the founder, they learned that there was an opening in the KKR squad, but they’d have to spend 30 lakhs.  In order to protect their child’s future, the family agreed to split the payment into two monthly installments. The owner began ignoring the family’s calls shortly after the transaction was received, and the family quickly learned they had been duped. The family of the boy then filed a lawsuit against the sports management company owner and Tiwari.
