Vikram Aggarwal, who was arrested by the CB-CID on Monday in connection with IPL betting case, will be probed for his links with Gurunath Meiyyappan. Meiyyappan was already arrested and released on bail in a separate betting case being probed by the Mumbai Crime Branch.
Sources said that the city-based hotelier had sound knowledge of the pitch conditions and other details pertaining to that of the IPL matches which the cops suspect could have been sourced from Gurunath which he, in turn, could have used to place bets in his favour. A senior CB-CID official said that it was too early to comment on Vikram’s links with Gurunath. “ However, we cannot rule out the fact that the hotelier had introduced the bollywood actor and book-maker Vindu Dara Singh”, the official said.
