Vadodara Police Nets ₹1 Crore in Raid on Ex-Women’s Cricket Coach Tushar Arothe’s Residence

Vadodara Police recently filed charges against ex-Indian women’s cricket team coach Tushar Arothe following the discovery of Rs 1 crore in cash at his Pratapgunj residence. The Special Operations Group uncovered a substantial sum stored in ‘grey bags.’ The incident unfolded last Saturday, drawing attention to the former coach’s financial affairs.

The Allegation:

Last Saturday, Vadodara Police took action against Tushar Arothe, the former coach of the Indian women’s cricket team, after discovering Rs 1 crore in cash at his Pratapgunj residence. Media reports revealed that the Special Operations Group (SOG) of Vadodara found a substantial sum of money stored in ‘grey bags’ during the raid. Additionally, approximately Rs 38 lakhs were seized from two acquaintances of the coach. In response to queries, Arothe reportedly failed to provide a satisfactory explanation for the presence of such a significant amount of cash.

According to a police press release on Sunday, the SOG conducted a raid at Arothe’s residence, leading to the discovery of ‘grey bags’ containing a total of Rs 1.01 crore. The release emphasized that Arothe could not provide a convincing account of the money during questioning. The authorities’ intervention extended to the seizure of Rs 38 lakhs from two individuals associated with the coach.

Putting aside cricket-related controversies, this isn’t Tushar Arothe’s initial encounter with betting issues. In 2019, Arothe and 18 others faced arrest during a raid at a cafe for engaging in betting activities during an IPL match between Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab. Subsequently, all the accused, including Arothe, were granted bail at that time, shedding light on a prior instance of legal involvement concerning betting allegations in the former cricket coach’s history.

Inspector’s Words:

On Sunday, SOG Inspector VS Patel shared details about the operation with the media through a press release. He said, “We received information that a huge amount of cash had reached Arothe’s home following which we reached his residence. We found a bag full of cash that amounted to Rs 1.01 crore. We also found another Rs 38 lakh from his two acquaintances.”

Later he added, “Arothe’s son Rishi had sent him the cash. When we questioned him about the cash on Sunday, Arothe couldn’t give a satisfactory reply. So, we seized the cash and filed a case under CrPC 102 at Sayajigunj police station.”

Talking about Tushar Arothe’s cricket career, the former all-rounder participated in a total of 51 List-A and 114 First-Class matches for Baroda. He managed to take 225 wickets and scored 6105 runs in First-Class cricket. Arothe concluded his playing career in 2003, and later in 2008, he joined the coaching staff of the Indian Women’s team. However, he resigned in 2018 due to a disagreement with the board. Arothe is the same coach who led the Indian women’s team to the 2017 ICC Women’s World Cup final. Since stepping down in 2018, he has been involved in several legal issues.
