Arbaaz Khan to be quizzed in IPL betting case today List of questions Thane Police may ask him

I will continue to cooperate with them: "Arbaaz Khan after giving a statement to Thane Anti-Extortion Cell in connection with a probe of an IPL betting case".

Bollywood actor and director Arbaaz Khan is making headlines after pleading guilty of placing bets previously during the Indian Premier League (IPL) matches.

The alleged bookie Sonu Jalan alias Sonu Malad was arrested recently and the during investigation, a "connection" between him and Arbaaz has been established, said Senior Inspector Pradeep Sharma, head of the Anti-Extortion Cell of Thane Police which is probing the case. Quoting sources, ANI reported that "during interrogation actor Arbaaz Khan accepted that he had placed bets in IPL matches a year ago and had lost Rs 2.75 crore".

During his interrogation, the name of Khan cropped up beside some handwritten diary entries and a picture of the producer-actor with Jalan and others allegedly involved in IPL betting. Jalan is said to be one of the top bookies of the country.

Arbaaz Khan, 50, is the brother of superstar Salman Khan.

DCP (Crime) Abhishek Trimukhe of the Thane Police said six people have been arrested in connection with the cricket betting racket. "We called Arbaaz Khan as we found his photographs with Jalan", the officer said.

Looks like the Khan family of Galaxy Apartments is up for another round of police and court visits, this time because of Arbaaz Khan. He allegedly has links with Karachi-based terrorist Dawood Ibrahim. The two are said to have known each other for over five years. He was arrested by Mumbai Police in 2012 for betting on the IPL, and released on bail.

6 accused have been arrested in cricket betting racket. The bookie has placed any allegations against Arbaaz and with regards to the money he owes him but none of it has been confirmed yet.
