Nagpur: Ever since the Indian Coffee House property at Dharampeth was sold off, there have been constant buzz among the patrons of this place. This coffee hangout has long served as the perfect meeting point of both young and old  connoisseurs alike,  but now it appears these enthusiasts have literally turned into nomad looking for another similar shelter.

However what baffled many of these is the fact that this property owned by Indian Coffee House Cooperative Society has been bought away by none but a well known cricket bookie, fondly known as “Bhai” in his close circle.

The long time chatter lot of the city’s social arena has colored the rustic ambience of these coffee shops with their lively presence. The emotions are often flavored with hot serving coffee with steaming idlis and dosas at very reasonable prices.

It brought a big blow to all of them soon after the property was handed over to the purchaser and the place was shut down. Later, it blew their mind off when it was revealed that the notorious cricket bookie named Jeetu, infamous for his bookie acts, has eventually got the ownership of this property.

Jeetu often remains away from limelight and keep himself aloof from the focus. However, it was not known what has been planned in place of this coffee shop. Meanwhile, the speculations are rife about the deal.
