Thane Police Summons Arbaaz Khan for IPL betting Case


Actor-producer Arbaaz Khan has been summoned by the Thane police in connection with an Indian Premier League (IPL) betting scam, a senior police official said.

Sources said Arbaaz had been asked by Thane police to join the probe and have his statement recorded.

Media reports said Arbaaz´s name surfaced in an investigation into high-profile bookie Sonu Jalan, who is said to run an global gambling operation stretching from India to the Middle East. While now media reports on the same are sketchy, it is learnt that Arbaaz has been summoned with the intention of him joining the probe into the betting racket.

The anti-extortion cell of the Thane Crime Branch on Tuesday had arrested Sonu Yogendra Jalan, alias Sonu Malad, one of the country's leading cricket bookies.

The police will try to find out that which IPL match was fixed and who was involved in the betting.

Arbaaz Khan, 50, is the brother of superstar Salman Khan. The alleged kingpin of the betting scandal turned out to be a bookie named Sonu Jalan/Malad, with his connection with Dawood Ibrahim's D-Company also becoming a matter of investigation.

The police had recently caught a betting ring and they had also arrested the 42-year old Sonu Batla.

The IPL has been dogged by gambling controversies since it started in 2008, and police say they have smashed a number of betting syndicates across India during this year´s season, which ended Saturday.

In those days, Jalan was working with a big bookie who went by the name Junior Calcutta. In May 2013, Delhi police had arrested three Rajasthan Royals players on spot-fixing charges soon after a match in Mumbai.
