Prime reason behind his divorce too is betting, he told the police. He was made to sit across the table from his bookie, Sonu Jalan, the alleged kingpin of IPL betting. Jalan was arrested by the police on Tuesday. In those days, Jalan was working with a big bookie who went by the name Junior Calcutta. Jalan had also told the police that Khan was present in one of the meetings held in Dubai a year ago. "It also has earphones and volumes buttons to talk to different bookies at the same time", said inspector Rajkumar Kothmire, Thane AEC. "We are probing to know which match was fixed and who all were involved", he added.

Arbaaz, who had been summoned by the Thane Police on Friday, arrived at the Anti-Extortion Cell around 11 am, and was questioned until 4 pm.

Meanwhile, bookie Sonu Jalan alias Sonu Malad, whose questioning had thrown up Arbaaz Khan's name, was produced before a court and remanded in police custody until June 6.

An official quoting the inquiry of the accused had stated that Khan had been putting off the payment to Jalan which as a outcome had resulted in him receiving threats from the bookie.

"Whatever the police will ask, I will give all the information", he said. "It is an ongoing investigation and I will continue to cooperate with the probe".
