Cracking Down on Ticket Black Marketing

The Kolkata police has asked Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president Snehashis Gangopadhyay to come in for questioning regarding the illegal sale of World Cup match tickets. Snehashis Gangopadhyay, who happens to be the brother of the former Indian men’s team captain and ex-BCCI president, Sourav Ganguly, needs to report to the authorities within the next 24 hours.

On November 2, a case was started at the Maidan Police Station because cricket fans said that tickets for the India-South Africa match were being sold at higher prices. They thought it was because of an online website and some people from CAB and BCCI. A senior police officer said a notice was sent on Thursday, and he should come within 24 hours.

On Friday, officials from the Kolkata police began questioning BookMyShow representatives, the official ticketing partner for the 2023 Men’s Cricket World Cup, at the Maidan police station. Similar notices were also issued to BookMyShow officials on Thursday. The Kolkata police have taken legal action in seven cases and detained 16 individuals for illegally selling World Cup match tickets. The police recovered 94 tickets and found that tickets valued at Rs 900 were being sold on the black market for Rs 8,000.
