There’s more to tainted cricketer S Sreesanth’s Bangalore link than his schooling and entrepreneurial days. The two ‘escort girls’ accompanying him when Delhi police arrested him in Mumbai last week, are from Bangalore, highly placed police sources said.
“One girl is from Richards Town while the other is from Richmond Town,” the sources said. The Bangalore girls not only accompanied the Kerala-based cricketer, but also monitored his movements and passed it to their ‘bosses’, suspected to be bookies, said police sources.
Investigation revealed that bookies use technology experts to track cricket-loving girls on social networking sites and use them as ‘escort girls'” to accompany cricketers. “Escort girls are not call girls. Being hardcore cricket fans, some agree to spend time with cricketers and unknowingly land in bookies’ trap,” sources said.
Escort girls are paid handsomely and provided accommodation in hotels, sources said.
