Mumbai, June 3 (ANI): Gurunath Meiyappan, the son-in-law of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president N Srinivasan, and actor Vindoo Dara Singh have both been sent to judicial custody till June 14 for their respective roles in the Indian Premier League (IPL) betting and spot-fixing case.

The Mumbai Police has been interrogating them on allegations of betting in cricket matches after their arrests last month.

The BCCI had earlier announced that a three-member inquiry commission will investigate spot-fixing and betting allegations against arrested players and Meiyappan, who has been arrested by the police over charges of betting.

A Delhi court had granted Chavan conditional bail till June 6 so that he could attend his wedding on June 2 in Mumbai. (ANI)
