As per Vishal and Kamalesh's instructions, the punters used to download 'Bet Bhai9.com' to play games. If the punters played the game online for below Rs. 50,000 then the main organizer used to give ID numbers through his agents.

The money collected was handed over to Patel Hitesh Ambala and the same was sent to Dharmesh Bhai.
