The bookie who contacted Shakib Al Hasan, is a blacklisted bookie named Deepak Agarwal from India.
He is known in the spot-fixing circuit and ICC Anti Corruption Unit has kept him under their constant survaillance.
ICC blacklisted Agarwal for his spot-fixing attempts in franchise cricket leagues as well as international matches.
Indian police arrested him back in April 2017 in the Indian city of Raigarh with two of his henchmen. He then was put behind bars.
But after getting out of jail, Agarwal went back to his usual business of spot-fixing.
