Earlier, the Enforcement Directorate arrested Anil Jaisinghani who was a suspected bookie. He was sent to jail after his name came in a money laundering case linked to an under-investigation Indian Premier League (IPL) ‘betting racket’.
Jaisinghani and his daughter Aniksha were sent to jail by the Mumbai Police for creating a conspiracy to bribe Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’s wife Amruta Fadnavis with the help of private messages, purportedly hers, to extort money from her when she refused to save Jaisinghani (Anil) from several FIRs lodged against him. The ED was depending on an open non-bailable warrant issued in the past against Jaisinghani by an Ahmedabad court. This warrant was made in 2015 in a money laundering case that was connected with the alleged betting in the IPL matches.
