The summon against the actor comes after a local court remanded notorious bookie Sonu Yogendra Jalan alias Sonu Malad for his alleged involvement in cricket betting, in police custody till June 2.
The investigators told the court that his police custody was required as the case was "complex" and the police have to carry out further probe into the case.
“We have booked him (Jalan) on betting charges. But we are, in a way, trying to trace his underworld connections to Dawood Ibrahim. It has come to our notice that Jalan assisted Dawood in fixing matches.
He even has links in Pakistan, Afghanistan and other countries. We are interrogating him about these links and about his money,” Pradeep Sharma, senior inspector of the anti-extortion cell told the Indian Express.
According to police, Malad allegedly had several international connections and is considered a big shot bookie in Mumbai.
“Jalan was close to several high-profile people. In case, other law-enforcement agencies want his custody, we will help,” he added.
Besides having associates in Delhi, Kolkata, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Haryana, Malad also had clients and punters in countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, South Africa
and Saudi Arabia, they had said. He was arrested several times in the past by the
Mumbai Police in connection with cricket betting....
