Former coach of the Indian Women’s Cricket Team, Tushar Arothe, faces escalating troubles as police raided his residence in Baroda. During the search, authorities discovered a bag containing ₹1 crore. Arothe, unable to provide satisfactory explanations regarding the source of the money, is now under investigation, and the seized amount has been confiscated.

A prominent figure in domestic cricket, Tushar Arothe gained acclaim for his all-round performances. With a cricket career comprising 114 First Class and 51 List A matches. He was the head coach when the Indian women’s team reached the World Cup final in 2017, earning him a two-year extension. But his term ended prematurely in July 2018 when he resigned after the defeat to Bangladesh in the Asia Cup final following reports of discord within the team. He had also been part of the team’s coaching staff between 2008 and 2012.

This isn’t the first time Tushar Arothe’s name has surfaced in controversial matters. 

In April 2019, the Vadodara Crime Branch had also arrested 19 people, including Arothe, from a local cafe in the city for alleged betting during an IPL match between Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab. All accused were granted bail by a court.

In the recent raid at his residence, police seized a phone from Arothe’s car, although no incriminating evidence was found during the investigation. Arothe contends that many people frequent his cafe, making it challenging to discern those involved in betting. Authorities, however, assert that Arothe was aware of the betting activities, challenging his denial. The investigation continues into the ex-coach’s financial dealings and connections to illicit activities.
