Actor Arbaaz Khan summoned by police in IPL betting case

Arbaaz Khan with brother Salman Khan

The Indian Premier League (IPL) betting scandal isn't dying down anytime soon as the Thane Police investigating the matter on Friday summoned Bollywood actor turned producer Arbaaz Khan.

For the uninitiated, this summon comes after the Thane Police had recently busted a betting ring and had arrested 42-year-old bookie, Sonu Jalan alias Sonu Batla.

Arbaaz is an actor and younger brother of Bollywood megastar Salman Khan, known for his money-spinning movies, but who also faces his own legal troubles.

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

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.

Arbaaz Khan, 50, is the brother of superstar Salman Khan. When Salim was further questioned about Arbaaz's pictures with Sonu Jalan, Salim retorted saying, "I don't know about anything related to this and please refrain from calling here again". His name apparently was brought up when one of country's biggest bookies Sonu Jalan's records were being probed. But we are, in a way, trying to trace his underworld connections to Dawood Ibrahim. "His software called "Bet and Take" is quite famous among bookies and is used by them in India and internationally as well", inspector Rajkumar Kotmire of the Thane anti-extortion cell had revealed, says Mid-Day. An official who is a part of the investigations confirmed to the media that Khan was there in relation with the IPL betting case.

"Jalan had arranged a match-fixing meeting at Dubai". The bookies were allegedly using a software to place bets online.
