Mumbai: Actor Vindoo Dara Singh and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) principal Gurunath Meiyappan, arrested in connection with the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing and betting scandal, were on Tuesday granted bail by a local court. Besides Vindoo and Meiyappan, the son-in-law of N. Srinivasan who recently stepped aside as president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), six bookies were also granted the relief on the bond of Rs.25,000 each.
The duo moved the bail applications on Monday after the metropolitan magistrate remanded them in judicial custody till 14 June. The court also asked all of them not to leave the country and report to the crime branch every alternate day.
The lawyers of Meiyappan and Vindoo requested the court to grant bail to their clients arguing that their custodial interrogation was not required. Meiyappan, 35, was arrested on the night of 25 May for his alleged involvement in the IPL betting scandal. He was in the eye of a storm after actor Vindoo, arrested on 22 May for his alleged links with bookies, admitted to having placed bets on his behalf.
