Media reports said Arbaaz´s name surfaced in an investigation into high-profile bookie Sonu Jalan, who is said to run an worldwide gambling operation stretching from India to the Middle East.
Arbaaz, brother of superstar Salman Khan, has been asked to appear before the Thane Anti Extortion Cell on Saturday, said Police Inspector Rajkumar Kothmire. Police say they have photographic and electronic evidence to prove that Arbaaz and Jalan are more than "just friends".
India Today reported that Jalan is associated with many Bollywood celebrities and his interogation may unearth some big names related to cricket betting. Police found their pictures together. 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. "Our initial estimate of the turnover of the betting scam run by Jalan is Rs 1,000 crore". Jalan was allegedly trying to extort money from him.
Ex-FBI deputy Andrew McCabe wrote memo on James Comey firing
If Trump fired James Comey over the investigation, that would very likely constitute obstruction of justice. McCabe asserts that Comey knew he authorized the media disclosure, and Comey claims otherwise.
"We have got the list of bookies and are verifying it with Jalan".
Jalan has also told interrogators about 2 matches being fixed by him with the help of his other associates, said the Times Now report.
Jalan had been arrested for betting on IPL matches by the Mumbai crime branch in 2012 too, the official added. While most were irked by the celeb's connection and asked if he too would be "left" outside the law like his brother Salman Khan, others made a decision to troll the Dabaang star.
