Cricket Coach in Cash Controversy: Rs 1 Crore Seized by Vadodara Police

Vadodara: The Special Operations Group (SOG) of the Vadodara Police conducted a raid on Arothe’s house in the Pratapgunj area based on a tip-off. During the raid, they discovered “grey bags” containing a substantial amount of cash, totaling Rs 1.01 crore.

According to a press release issued by the SOG, Arothe “failed to provide a satisfactory explanation” when questioned about the origin of the cash. Inspector V S Patel of the SOG stated that they received information about “bags of cash arriving at the apartment of Arothe’s son, Rishi, who has a history of involvement in cricket betting and cheating cases.”

The raid also led to the apprehension of two other individuals, Vikrant Raipatvar and Amit Janit, who were found in possession of Rs 38 lakh in cash. All three individuals, including Arothe, were booked under Section 102 of the CrPC (power to seize property) for their inability to explain the source of the large sums of cash.

This incident is not Arothe’s first brush with controversy. In April 2019, the Vadodara Crime Branch arrested him, along with 19 others, for alleged betting during an IPL match. However, all those arrested were eventually granted bail by the court.

Arothe, a former cricketer who played first-class cricket for Baroda, served as the head coach of the Indian women’s team when they reached the World Cup final in 2017. His tenure was initially extended for two years due to this success. However, his term ended abruptly in July 2018 following reports of team discord and a loss to Bangladesh in the Asia Cup final. He had previously been part of the team’s coaching staff between 2008 and 2012.
