Sonu's name is reportedly often mentioned in Mumbai's Satta Bazaar and he allegedly has clients in countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, South Africa and Saudi Arabia.

Mumbai: Indian police summoned a brother of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan Friday for questioning over illegal gambling on Indian Premier League cricket matches.

It appears that there is an ongoing investigation regarding an IPL betting case in relation to the bookie Sonu Jalan, who was arrested on betting charges, as reported by Indian Express.

The names of a Bollywood celebrity, contractors and builders figured in the diary, police said. Pradeep Sharma, senior police inspector from Thane anti extortion cell said that during the investigation, it was found that Arbaaz Khan was being threatened by Sonu Jalan as he had lost money on one of the matches. "Subsequently, there was another huge transaction between them".

Apparently, after arresting Jalan, it was found out that the bookie had a connection with Khan who as per reports had placed a bet through top bookies. "But all this will be probed once Khan gives his side of the story", the police officer said.

The police had recently busted a betting ring and had arrested 42-year-old Jalan, who allegedly operated in the country as well as overseas. "We need to corroborate it with evidence and statements of those who are linked with the racket".

The IPL has been dogged by gambling controversies since it started in 2008, and police say they have smashed a number of betting syndicates across India during this year´s season, which ended Saturday.

Jalan has also told interrogators about 2 matches being fixed by him with the help of his other associates, said the Times Now report.
