South African cricket player Wayne Parnell who was a wanted accused to be a part of a 'rave party' during the last Indian Premier League, surrendered before a local court.

Parnell was later granted bail for Rs 10,000.

He had earlier been shown as a wanted accused in the chargesheet of the case.

Last month, the Special NDPS court had given a copy of the chargesheet filed in the case to the accused, including IPL cricketer Rahul Sharma and Bollywood actor couple Apoorva Agnihotri and Shilpa Agnihotri.

Mumbai Police had on March 6 filed the chargesheet in the case after which the court had summoned all the accused.

Sharma and the actor couple, along with others, had been rounded up after a raid on a suburban hotel.

Police had conducted a raid in May last year on a party at a hotel in suburban Juhu, where drugs were allegedly being consumed, and rounded up around 86 persons.

They filed a 1,200-page chargesheet against 86 people while 35 accused, mostly foreigners, were shown as wanted, a police official had earlier said. The wanted accused include foreigners who left the country after the medical examination.

The chargesheet named Vishay Handa, the Director of the hotel, DJs Deepesh Sharma and Rakesh Sharma, Agnihotris, and Sharma, among others.
