The 49-year-old actor was arrested for his alleged association with bookies. Vindu, winner of reality TV show Bigg Boss season 3, was allegedly in touch with some bookies arrested in the scandal.

The actor also reportedly admitted to having facilitated the escape of two bookies — Pawan Jaipur and Sanjay Jaipur– to Dubai from Mumbai on May 17.

The duo had gone underground to evade arrest after Mumbai police busted the international betting racket with the arrest of key bookie Ramesh Vyas and three others on May 14,

The ongoing IPL found itself in a mess after speedster S Sreesanth and two of his Rajasthan Royals team mates were arrested by police, which claimed they received upto Rs 60 lakh from bookies for bowling one manipulated over.
