Kandoria contacted Shah on the mobile number mentioned on the social media platform and sought 41 tickets for friends and kin, for which he transferred Rs 2.68 lakh to the accused, the official informed.

"The complainant and his friends paid Shah 90,000 for the first set of 15 tickets, then Rs 30,000 for another five tickets and so on. However, Kandoria did not get any ticket. Shah was held on Friday under Indian Penal Code sections for breach of trust, cheating and other offences," he said.

Earlier, Ahmedabad police had arrested four persons for selling fake match tickets.
