Mumbai: Arbaaz Khan has got in major trouble as he got summoned by police for Indian Premiere League (IPL) betting scam. The 42-year-old actor was held for being active in a betting ring led by a bookie named Sonu Jalan alias Sonu who carries out the illegal business in India and abroad. He was called by the Thane police on Friday in this high profile case. Sonu is known to be in the connection with underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.
Who is Sonu Jalan
Sonu Jalan, a Mumbai resident, is a partner in an online portal which was active during the IPL season. The anti-extortion unit of Thane police claims that his arrest would further expose the betting racket and bring to light an army of bookies.
