Bollywood actor and producer Arbaaz Khan was summoned for investigations and interrogation into the ongoing probe in the Indian Premier League (IPL) betting case, other bollywood celebrities are also in the suspect list, a Mumbai police official said here on Friday.

Arbaaz, younger brother of superstar Salman Khan, has been asked to appear before the Thane crime branch’s Anti Extortion Cell (AEC) on Saturday, said Police Inspector Rajkumar Kothmire.

The summons were issued to Arbaaz after prominent bookie Sonu Jalan alias Sonu Batla — who reportedly has links with various mafia dons, including absconding Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar — was arrested sometime ago and interrogated by the AEC sleuths in connection with the IPL scam, he added.
