Mumbai: A bribery case, which had almost disappeared from the Central Bureau of Investigation's (CBI) list, has made a surprise comeback with fresh searches and arrest.
Meanwhile (CBI) has arrested three persons – Sonu Jalan from Mumbai, a businessman from Delhi J K Arora and Jayesh Thakker from Ahmedabad – in connection with charges of bribery during the investigation of the Rs 2,600-crore IPL betting scam by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
CBI sources said Jalan and Thakker were produced before the special CBI court and the probe agency secured their custodial interrogation. Arora was produced at Saket court in Delhi, which granted his transit remand.
A city court later remanded them to police custody for seven days. ED was probing the betting scam which was unearthed at Vadodara last year and its spread across the country was traced. Many arrests were made for money laundering. This was the first case of money laundering involving a betting racket.
