Revealed: Arbaaz and Malaika’s 18-year relationship has broken down due to this
Mumbai When Salman Khan’s brother Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Aurora got divorced last year, people were shocked at how it happened. How the 18-year relationship came to an abrupt end, which is now revealed. The reason was Arbaaz Khan’s involvement in cricket betting.
Arbaaz Khan was summoned by the Thane Crime Branch today to record his statement in the betting case where he admitted that he had bet on IPL matches for six years and lost Rs 2.75 crore last year, but no bet was made this year.
According to sources, Arbaaz further said that his father and then wife Malaika were always angry with him for this habit and there were many quarrels over it. It is believed that Malaika got divorced from Arbaaz because of this habit of Arbaaz.
According to sources, he continued to invest more money even though he was angry due to continuous defeats. Due to this the creditors of the house started getting calls and Malaika also had to face them. Salman Khan was also aware of this bad habit of Arbaaz and told his brother several times to stay away from it.
Arbaaz Khan’s bet was caught when a bookie named Sonu Jalan came into police custody. Police also found a diary from him, according to which a Pakistani politician and several other Bollywood names were involved in the scam. Sources further said that in IPL 2018, bookie Sonu Jalan earned Rs 500 crore for the entire season. In the final between Chennai and Hyderabad, the revenue surpassed 100 million.
On May 29, police arrested bookie Sonu Jalan, from whom Arbaaz Khan’s name came up during interrogation. Arbaaz allegedly lost Rs 2.83 crore in T20 betting last year and Sonu kept pressuring Arbaaz to get his money.
According to encounter specialist Pradeep Sharma and interrogation team DCP (Crime) Abhishek Trimukh, six people have been arrested and a few more have been named, against whom action will be taken.
