Vindoo and Meiyappan released from police custody

Bollywood actor Vindoo Dara Singh and son-in-law of BCCI chief N Srinivasan, Gurunath Meiyappan, have been granted bail in the IPL-6 spot-fixing case on Tuesday. Both suspects paid an amount of Rs. 25,000 each.

Although Vindoo and Meiyappan have been released from police custody, both are strictly advised not to leave the country. In fact, they are directed to surrender their passports to the concerned authorities and pay semiweekly visits to the Mumbai Crime Branch Office.

During investigation, Vindoo has admitted that he was in touch with a relative of an IPL franchise owner. Police also traced all his calls made to Chennai numbers over the past six months to establish more facts. The 49-year-old actor is charged with cheating and forgery. Mumbai Police claims that an alleged bookie Ramesh Vyas named Vindoo in the scam. Vyas told the investigating team that Vindoo has connections with influential bookies and allegedly facilitated them.

BCCI has formed a three-member inquiry commission tasked to investigate spot-fixing and betting allegations against arrested players. The commission will also look into the case of Meiyappan who was arrested over charges of betting in IPL matches. Meiyappan is also a business executive for the most successful IPL franchise, the Chennai Super Kings. CSK is owned by his father-in-law Srinivasan who is also heading the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) since 2011.
