A Mumbai magistrate Tuesday sent Bollywood actor Vindoo Dara Singh, who was arrested earlier Tuesday for suspected links in the spot-fixing scam in the ongoing IPL tournament, to police custody till May 24.
Police sought his custodial interrogation after Ramesh Vyas, one of the bookies arrested in the scam and currently in police custody, revealed Vindu's name.
Vindu was picked up from his suburban home Tuesday morning by a team of Mumbai police Crime Branch sleuths.
With the arrest of Vindu, 49, Mumbai police have sounded the first knock on Bollywood, completing the cricket-underworld-Bollywood nexus in the betting and spot-fixing scam that has hit the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Son of the celebrated wrestler-cum-actor, the late Dara Singh, Vindu shot into the limelight a few years ago after wining the "Bigg Boss 2010" reality show on TV.
Though police are reluctant to divulge details, it is learnt that Vindu had been under the scanner for the past few days after Vyas was arrested.
Three Rajasthan Royals IPL cricketers S. Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan and over a dozen bookies have been arrested in the ongoing investigations into the IPL-6 spot-fixing scam busted last week.

Why is everyone surprised that all these people are getting caught with spot fixing. I know majority of the people in IPL are involved but they won't come out because they'll have to shut it down and why would they do that when they have invested crores of money and everyone is enjoying it? Everyone knows its already prefixed so all this is going to be normal. Not trying to be against IPL I do watch it but I only watch it as a sport and nothing else because at the end of the day I know all this is just a money making business like every other sport so I won't be shocked to see if more people come out as spot fixing. :)
