Arrested bookie and betting kingpin Sonu Jalan who had previously named Arbaaz Khan as one of the people engaged in high value betting, has now taken another name in front of the police -- Bollywood filmmaker Sajid Khan.
Bookie Sonu Jalan on Tuesday named director Sajid Khan, for allegedly betting in the Indian Premier League (IPL) matches around seven years ago, ANI reported. The Thane police, who questioned Jalan earlier in the day, is investigating his claims and is yet to take a decision on summoning Sajid for joining the investigation, informed the Thane crime branch sources to ANI. Jalan was questioned by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the IPL betting case registered in Gujarat's Ahmedabad. Bollywood star Arbaaz Khan's name was also cropped up in the investigation.
Arbaaz, brother of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, confessed to placing bets last year and losing Rs. 2.75 crore. Arbaaz, 50, said he will continue to co-operate with the police in this investigation. The actor was called for questioning on May 29 by the Anti Extortion Cell, Thane.
We wonder who else was involved with the IPL betting!
