Salman Khan’s brother Arbaaz Khan; Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s husband Raj Kundra and Dara Singh’s son Vindu Dara Singh were caught in the 2018 IPL (Indian Premier League) scandal.
On Saturday, Arbaaz confessed to the police that he had indulgence in the IPL matches those were played last month. He said he had indulgence in some of the matched played. He was questioned about the connection in the IPL scandal at the police station. His name was up after an interrogation with the bookie Sonu Jalal.
Arbaaz Khan said, “I answered all the questions asked by police. It’s an ongoing investigation and i will continue to co-operate with the probe.” These lines were said by Arbaaz after the interrogation was done.
Arbaaz is the only latest actor caught in the IPL betting scam. It was also reported that Arbaaz’s ex-wife Malika Arora rushed to the Galaxy apartment (where Arbaaz lives with his family) to meet the actor cum filmmaker. Arbaaz was interrogated by the Anti Extortion Cell, Thane, Mumbai for the IPL betting scam.
Now, every year IPL has some new drama and gossip to provide and this year it is no less than a Bollywood movie. Since the game is very glamorous filled with stars and stardom the IPL 2018 is no less than a Bollywood movie.
Actor Arbaaz Khan confesses his betting charges and says that he will cooperate with the cops for any further investigation.
In the year 2013, three players of the IPL team Rajasthan Royals were charged for spot-fixing the match. The three names include Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila, and Ankeet Chavan. These players were suspended and in the investigation, it was also known that the late Wrestler Dara Singh’s son Vindu Dara Singh has connections with the bookies. He was released on a bail after 13 days of his arrest and he also claimed to be innocent. But, after the Arbaaz’s incident, Vindu’s name is expected to come out once again.
Spot-fixing is the match-fixing on a particular ball or the particular outcome of the match and not the entire match-fixing.
Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra the former co-founder of the team Rajasthan Royals was questioned about his links in the IPL betting by the Delhi Police and he admitted on betting on his own team and was later suspended by the BCCI from the team. The Supreme Court banned him from all cricket activities for life for good measures.
In countries like Sri Lanka, South Africa, Australia, England and New Zealand; betting is legal but this is not the same in India. Betting here is considered illegal.
