Thane Anti Extortion Cell (AEC) interrogated Bollywood producer Parag Sanghvi on Wednesday in connection with the Indian Premier League (IPL) betting case.
Meanwhile, the Thane police also decided to make actor Arbaaz Khan and Sanghvi witnesses in the case. Moreover, Sanghvi has produced films like ‘Partner,’ ‘Bhoot Returns’ and ‘The Attacks of 26/11’.
He is also the Chief Executive Officer of Alumbra Entertainment and Lotus Film Company.
Previously on June 4, AEC summoned Sanghvi and another person Sameer Buddha in connection with the case. However, Sanghvi in his statement has denied any partnership with Sonu Jalan, the main accused.
According to reports, Sanghvi claimed he met Jalan five years back in a restaurant at Juhu. He also claimed he had snapped ties once he came to know Jalan’s betting business.
Moreover, the duo from tinsel town will shortly record their statement in the court under section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code.
However, in a shocking development, Bollywood actor Arbaaz Khan agreed to have placed bets on IPL matches for six years. Arbaaz revealed he knew Sonu and the latter was threatening him, as he owed him Rs 2.8 crore. Arbaaz also agreed to cooperate with the police regarding the incident.
The actor’s name cropped up during the investigation of a bookie, Sonu Jalan, who was arrested by the police last month.
