He will be presented before a magistrate Saturday morning for remand.

Kalachowki was among the absconders for whom the Mumbai and state police were on the lookout ever since the IPL scam broke out May 15 with the arrest of some cricketers and bookies in Mumbai.

Though investigators remain tight-lipped, Kalachowki is expected to throw more light on the ongoing probe into the IPL scam.
