According to the Madhya Pradesh Police team camping in Mumbai, Anil Jaisinghani (54) was booked for allegedly smuggling alcohol from Daman and Diu to Dhar district following the seizure of Rs 50 lakhs worth of liquor in August 2020. โ€œThe arrest of Indore residents Gaffar and Munir led the investigators to Anil Jaisinghani.

Anil Jaisinghani had used the same tactics of implicating Madhya Pradesh state excise officials in "fake'" cases to blackmail and pressurise the cops probing the inter- state traffcking of alcohol and evasion of excise duties. The bookie and hawala operator was notorious for filing fake cases against police, ED and other government officers investigating his criminal activities.

โ€œAnil Jaisinghani had his hand in every criminal enterprise but surprisingly managed to evade arrest in over 17 criminal cases in five states. He fixed cricket matches and ran popular cricket betting sites, managed hawala funds, smuggled alcohol, filed fake cases of rapes and kidnapping against police, threatened and evicted properties to take forcibe possesion. The list is endless,โ€ said an amused Mumbai Police officers at the growing request of several states police and central agencies seeking custody of Jaisinghani for questioning.

Goa and Assam also wants to question Anil Jaisinghani in fake rape cases filed to implicate business rivals. He is the pioneers of cricket betting and match fixing in India wanted by the Enforcement Directorate in the Rs 10,000 crore IPL spot-fixing and betting case registered in Gujarat.

Dhar Superintendent of Police Aditya Pratap Singh confirmed that a team of Madhya Pradesh Police was in Mumbai to seek custody of Jaisinghani.
