Mumbai:A dance bar girl named Tarannum, from whom the Income Tax department had seized property worth lakhs of rupees during a recent raid, was yesterday quizzed for her alleged links with bookies and cricketers, police said.

Tarannum was also interrogated day before yesterday, police said. After it was discovered through her cell phone that she had links with cricket bookies, the IT department had passed on the information to Mumbai police to probe her role in the betting business, police sources said.

The Income Tax department had recently raided Tarannum's house and seized Rs 22 lakh cash, jewellery worth Rs nine lakh, besides documents of two flats and a shop, which the IT department suspects, was owned by her in 'benami' names, the sources added.
