Actor Arbaaz Khan Summoned In Connection With IPL Betting By Mumbai Cops

According to reports in the media, Jalan has a widespread racket with a majority of clients in South Africa.

Police on Friday summoned actor Arbaaz Khan for questioning in connection with an IPL betting ring.

Jalan was first nabbed around 10 years ago when the IPL betting scam had erupted and later investigations proved he was in touch with several world personalities, including Arbaaz.

Thane police's anti-extortion cell had recently busted a betting ring and arrested 42-year-old Sonu Jalan alias Sonu Malad, who is said to be one of the "biggest bookies" in cricket globally.

The names of a Bollywood celebrity, contractors and builders figured in the diary, police said. Police Inspector Rajkumar Kothmire said, "The actor and producer has been asked to appear before the Thane Anti Extortion cell on Saturday". Also, the name of a Pakistani politician has come to the fore, an angle cops are probing. On further investigation, the police also found photographs of Jalan and Arbaaz Khan. Apparently, Khan was blackmailed into paying crores, the threat being that his gambling habit would be exposed.

Subsequently, the Mumbai crime branch arrested actor Dara Singh's son Vindoo and then BCCI president Narayanswami Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan on charges of conspiracy, cheating and betting in the IPL.

In a letter sent to Arbaaz today, the police asked him to join the probe in the wake of arrest of an alleged bookie who was placing bets on the recently-concluded Indian Premier League, the official said. "His network could involve almost 3,500 punters", said Sharma.

"Jalan had arranged a match-fixing meeting at Dubai".
