Mumbai: Sahil Khan, accused in the Mahadev betting app case, appeared in court today. During the hearing, the prosecution argued that Sahil Khan is not an endorser but the owner of an app through which gambling is conducted. Officials in court stated that Sahil Khan is the owner of 'The Lion Book' app and used to visit Dubai in this regard.

Investigation officers want to know who Sahil Khan met in Dubai, who used to bear the expenses of his trips to Dubai, and also how many people he had added to this app of his. Crime branch officials informed the court that Sahil Khan is not cooperating at all in the investigation. He is not answering the questions asked properly. Demand for police custody was made by the crime branch officials to investigate all these matters.

Sahil Khan's lawyer, while presenting arguments, clearly stated that Sahil Khan is a celebrity. He promotes these apps as endorsements. Besides that, there is nothing else. The police have not yet found any evidence or any account where Sahil Khan may have dealt with money, or any call detail that proves Sahil Khan is involved in gambling. After hearing arguments from both sides, the court has remanded Sahil Khan to police custody until May 7th.

Sahil Khan has worked in several Bollywood films, including 'Excuse Me', 'Aladdin', and 'Rama'. It's alleged that Sahil Khan promotes the Mahadev betting app as a promoter on the website.

Social activist Prakash Bankar had filed an FIR against Sahil in November 2023, in which he alleged that Sahil was promoting online betting or gambling apps. According to the FIR, the scam associated with the Mahadev betting app is around 15,000 crore rupees. Mumbai Police has registered a case against 32 individuals in the betting app case, including promoters like Saurabh Chandrakar and Ravi Uppal.
