Arbaaz Khan’s IPL betting: Salman and family in a ‘state of shock’


The Khan parivaar is in a state of shock after Arbaaz Khan’s confessed to IPL betting.  A close source of Salman’s family revealed that no one from the family was aware of this betting business of Arbaaz and when his name cropped up, they were totally taken aback. Now there prevails a stoic silence at the Galaxy apartment.

“I don’t think anyone in the family knew about this (Arbaaz’s betting). Arbaaz didn’t share this with anyone. Salman and the family came to know about it only when he was summoned for interrogation. Now they’re waiting for Arbaaz to tell them everything in detail. No one in the family will persuade Arbaaz to talk. The family lives together but each member is given space,” the friend has been quoted as saying by Deccan Chronicle.

“They don’t know what hit them. I think, neither Salim saab nor Salman interfere with Arbaaz’s life. After the public breakup with wife Malaika and his subsequent association with another woman, I don’t think anyone in the family was happy with this. Now this latest controversy is quite a setback,” added the friend.

During police interrogation, Arbaaz Khan admitted to IPL betting and losing around 2.75crore. "Arbaaz Khan's name came up in the case during the interrogation of Sonu Jalan. His statement has been recorded and some new names have cropped up. Action will be taken against them," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime) Abhishek Trimukhe.
