Actor Vindoo Dara Singh and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) principal Gurunath Meiyappan, arrested in connection with the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal, were today granted bail by a local court.

Besides Vindoo and Gurunath, the son-in-law of N Srinivasan who recently stepped aside as BCCI president, six bookies too were granted the relief on the bond of Rs 25,000 each.

The duo moved the bail applications yesterday after the metropolitan magistrate remanded them in judicial custody till June 14.

The court also asked all of them to not leave the country and report to the Crime Branch every alternate day.

The lawyers of Gurunath and Vindoo requested the court to grant bail to their clients arguing that their custodial interrogation was not required.

Gurunath (35) was arrested on the night of May 25 for his alleged involvement in the IPL betting scandal.

He was in the eye of a storm after actor and TV reality show winner Vindoo, arrested on May 22 for his alleged links with bookies, admitted to having placed bets on his behalf.
