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. An official who is a part of the investigations confirmed to the media that Khan was there in relation with the IPL betting case.

The cops have asked Arbaaz, who is better known to be the brother of superstar Salman Khan to make be present before the Thane Anti Extortion Cell on Saturday. It is a huge betting scam that is predicted to be in the range of 500-600 crore and the police are trying to find out from Arbaaz what role he has in the entire scene.

A prominent bookmaker by the name Sonu Jalan alias Sonu Batla was nabbed by the cops and it is reported that he has links with various mafias, including the most wanted Dawood Ibrahim. Another man Kaskar was also arrested recently by the Thane police for his involvement in the IPL betting scam, said Police Inspector Rajkumar Kothmire as quoted by ET.

“The case investigations are going on since the past five-six years and could involve amounts of over Rs 500-600 crore. We want to find out from Arbaaz what was his role in the entire matter,” said Kothmire one of the investigating officers in the case.

He also suggested that Arbaaz’s name came up while they were interrogating Jalan, the sleuths also got hold of photographs that feature other popular individuals from the B-Town along with prominent personalities from around the world and the police can summon some of them in the future. He was arrested around a decade ago when the IPL betting scam was uncovered.

Kothmire mentioned that at this point it appears as if the scam connects with some of the most proactive bookies in India from Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Jaipur as well as New Delhi.
