The anticipatory bail applications of hotelier Vikram Aggarwal and Vinoth Kumar, the clerk of another accused, who apprehended arrest in the IPL match betting cases, were refused bail by the Madras High Court on Thursday.

Considering the nature of the offences and its inter-state ramifications, the bail pleas were rejected, vacation judge C T Selvam said on Thursday.

A reading of the counter by the police would prima facie disclose the participation of the petitioners in the alleged wrong doings. “This court is not inclined to accept the present petitions,” the judge observed and dismissed them. Following a request from petitioners’ counsel Abudu Kumar Rajarathinam, the judge said the petitions would stand dismissed ‘for the present’.

“This court is of the view that it is not necessary to make any observation as it was always open to the accused to seek the relief subsequently on the basis of the appropriate grounds,” the judge added.
