Bollywood actor-producer Arbaaz Khan was summoned for investigations into the ongoing probe in the IPL betting case, a police official said in Thane on Friday. He was arrested in connection with a betting racket that was busted in Dombivali on May 16.

According to Sharma, Jalan was attending a meeting with an alias of Dawood. It purportedly had the phone numbers of more than 100 bookies, the name of a Bollywood celebrity, contractors and builders. The bookies were allegedly using a software to place bets online. Several reports reveal that Jalan was in contact with Arbaaz. According to police, a software called "Bet and Take", which was being used by the bookies to place bets nationally and internationally, was provided by Jalan. As of now, since we got the name of Khan during interrogation, we have summoned him. "We want to find out from Arbaaz what was his role in the entire matter", said Kothmire who is probing the matter.

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.

Dont roast marshmallows over erupting Hawaii volcano: USGS
The most active of the five volcanoes that form the islands of Hawaii, Kilauea has been erupting almost continuously since 1983. Authorities on Tuesday advised residents to minimize exposure to avoid irritation to skin and eyes and breathing problems.


The Investigating Officer, Pradeep Sharma said, the police are presently working to verify whether Arbaz khan indulged in any match fixing or not.

Jalan is believed to be linked to wanted fugitive Dawood Ibrahim and several other worldwide bookies.

Jalan was arrested by the CBI in 2016 in connection with a bribery case against a former joint director of Enforcement Directorate in Ahmedabad. When Salim was further questioned about Arbaaz's pictures with Sonu Jalan, Salim retorted saying, "I don't know about anything related to this and please refrain from calling here again".
