Shocking! Salman Khan’s Brother Questioned In IPL Betting Scandal!


Bollywood actor Arbaaz Khan was reportedly questioned by the Thane police for his alleged involvement in IPL betting. According to reports, his name featured during the investigation of a high profile bookie Sonu Jalan. Arbaaz has been asked to record his statement by the anti-extortion cell of Thane crime branch.

Brother of superstar Salman Khan, Arbaaz was summoned for alleged placements of money on matches during the 11th season of the IPL through bookies. It is reported that Arbaaz was betting on IPL matches and lost about Rs 2.8 crore in bets following which he was receiving threats from Jalan.

Further reports add that according to Jalan, Khan allegedly placed bets initially and incurred major losses. He is then alleged to have placed more bets in which he recovered the money. Thane Police said they had busted the racket on May 16 with the arrest of five bookies operating out of Dombivli, Mumbai. Based on interrogation, the police arrested Jalan earlier this week.

In the past, cricket betting-related activities have been associated with several Bollywood stars including Arjun Rampal, whose brother-in-law was arrested last year. Movies like Jannat, Do Dooni Chaar, and the Mohammad Azharuddin biopic focused on cricket betting.
