Six bookmakers have been arrested in India for betting on Indian Premier League cricket matches.

Betting on cricket is illegal in India but the police say the group did not appear to be involved in any spot-fixing.

The IPL tournament has been reeling from a spot-fixing scandal which has led to the arrest of three cricketers and 11 bookies.

This year's tournament finished on Monday, with the Mumbai Indians beating the Chennai Super Kings to lift their first IPL title.
