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.
